    This was absolutely delicious. I’ve wanted to make it at times that I cannot find fresh tarragon at the grocery. I don’t have a garden. What would you suggest substituting for the tarragon if I HAVE to. I don’t want to mess with the recipe. I have no choice if I want the chicken salad.

      Hi Bonnie! If you can find dried tarragon at your grocery store, that works as well! Because dried tarragon is more potent than fresh tarragon, it is suggested to use less – about a teaspoon for this recipe. This also applies to tarragon replacements, such as dill, dried oregano, or marjoram.
