I consider myself a bit of a chicken salad aficionado.
I’m compelled to order it if I see it on a menu.
Thanks to a friend’s referral, the best I think I’ve found in a restaurant is the Tarragon Chicken Salad at Bruegger’s Bagels. (It’s served on whole wheat bread, not a bagel, BTW). Here’s how they describe it: Diced chicken, almonds, red onions, cranberries, lemon tarragon mayo, tomato & lettuce on wheatberry bread.
Whenever I’m hosting a shower, or having friends over for lunch, you can expect chicken salad to make an appearance. Often, I’ll make a chicken pasta salad.
