    Fantastic! Added onions and left out the nuts.

    Really liked the flavor and textures. Swapped grated carrots for pecans due to convenience. Really yummy

    The chicken salad was delicious. I added a little heavy cream to give it a sweet taste.

    Turned out yummy! I might use a bit less salt next time, but I ended up using less mayo so maybe that’s why. Great flavors and textures!

    delicious! i️ didn't add the celery because i️m not a huge fan and i️ used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream

    Very yummy. I used a whole rotisserie chicken, grapes, and served it in celery (insted of chopping the celery up & adding it.) The tarragon taste was wonderul.

    Tastes good but I think you could use less sour cream/mayo. It was a little too creamy. Otherwise good

    Creamy, sweet, and tangy. I rarely have fresh tarragon on hand, but just about any herb or spice you like will do. I like to substitute 3 or 4 Tbs finely diced green or sweet onion.

    Awesome...we added a green onion and diced apple also. We decided to use roasted walnuts which were fantastic
