Chicken salad often finds its way to my summer menus, served on greens or a croissant. I think this one is just a little special. It's sweet and juicy from the apples and grapes, a little savory from the tarragon, crunchy from the pecans and celery, and lightened up a bit with some yogurt.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, tarragon, Dijon mustard, and lime zest and juice together in a small bowl. Stir dressing into the chicken mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

The chicken thighs may be grilled and refrigerated the day prior, making meal preparation even easier. We like chicken thighs because of the additional flavor, but if you prefer, chicken breasts may be used.

This is delicious! The only change I made was only using the juice of half a lime and omitting the lime zest. Definitely a keeper! Read More

This will make a wonderful luncheon salad to serve to friends! I had to add a little bit of sugar to the dressing because my lime was a little tart! I grilled my chicken after a short marinating in lime olive oil and lemongrass mint white balsamic vinegar. Serve this with a little toasted French bread and you have yourself a winner.

I put it on a bed of fresh arugula and served it with a crusty baguette. So good! Read More

Excellent flavors. I didn’t have tarragon or pecans and it was still out of this world! Read More
