Autumn Chicken Salad Sandwich

Autumn Chicken Salad Sandwich

Fall has arrived and I don’t think I know a soul who isn’t stoked about that.  While people are freaking out about pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice and PSLs…. I think people forget that there are so many fall flavors that make this season special.  Some things that come to mind are apples and tarragon! Both used in this chicken salad and both amazing complements to a classic dish.  Now that I bought some tarragon I am trying to think of what else I can put it in… I think I will stick with savory dishes though.  If I had to explain what tarragon tastes like, if you haven’t experienced it, I would say a herby anise or almost licorice scent.   This definitely doesn’t taste like a licorice chicken salad, but small hints of that flavor family come through in a very subtle and herby way.  Am I making any sense?  How about you go and get some yourself and tell me what you think?  You can use fresh tarragon but I used dried because it was all they had at the store.  Either way, this sandwich is so tasty and will make your stomach remember what season it is! Did I mention it is super simple to throw together?
