Ingredients

Tarragon Mayo

  • 1 cup mayonnaise - store bought or homemade
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh tarragon - finely chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1/2 small shallot - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch fine sea salt

Chicken Salad

  • 2 cups shredded chicken - chicken breast or rotisserie chicken work best for this recipe
  • 1 Envy apple - finely chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery - finely chopped
  • cup pecan halves or pieces
  • 2 green onions - scallions, finely chopped
  • ¾ - 1 cup Tarragon Mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • 2 Envy apples - sliced into coins (about 10/apple)
  • Fresh tarragon or micro greens - for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, tarragon, shallot, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and salt; whisk to combine. Use immediately or can be made 1-day in advance. Cover; chill until ready to use.
  • Slice Envy Apples into thin rounds, ignoring the core. You should get 10 rounds (“coins”) from each apple.
  • To a large mixing bowl combine shredded chicken, finely chopped apple, celery, pecans and green onions. Pour in ¾ cup Tarragon Mayonnaise; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. You may need to add up to an additional ¼ cup Tarragon Mayo depending on personal preference.
  • Top each apple round with Apple Tarragon Chicken Salad. Garnish with tarragon or microgreens, if desired. Serve immediately.
