Who’s been spending as much time outside as possible lately?  The weather has been absolutely wonderful with bright blue skies and sunny days. We had a brief heatwave (an another on the way) but I much prefer that to being stuck inside during the gray days of winter. I’ve been packing up my lunches lately for long days on the beach and picnics in the park. Light, fresh flavor has been key in making my favorite lunch staples a little more summery like this Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich.

Just like my favorite Chicken Waldorf salad, this Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad is a twist on the classic chicken salad recipe. Punched up with fresh lemon zest, lemon juice and fresh tarragon, it’s soon to become a summer favorite in your family too!

How to make Chicken Salad?

An easy chicken salad recipe is quick and simple to make with just cooked chicken breast. Toss all your chicken salad ingredients in a big bowl and stir to combine. I like to make a big batch of this Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad recipe to keep for the week so I can whip up quick sandwiches on the fly.

What are the ingredients of chicken salad?

The main ingredients in classic chicken salad recipes are usually pre-cooked chicken breast (I like to use THIS Roasted Chicken Breast recipe), chopped celery, red onion and a light mayonnaise based dressing.

It’s a great starting point to then add your favorite twists on chicken salad like I did with this Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad recipe. Fresh ingredients like lemon and tarragon really punch up the flavor for summertime making this the very BEST Chicken Salad recipe you’ll ever make.

Sara Lee Artisan Rolls in the package.

And it’s absolutely amazing on top of the brand new Sara Lee Artesano Bakery Buns! Their rich homemade flavor, soft texture, creamy taste and flour-dusted crust make them my go-to bun for sandwich making all summer long.
