Tarragon Chicken Salad




Tarragon was used by the Greeks as early as 500 BC. They used it as a cure for toothaches! This salad is great as a sandwich or on top of a green salad.

Small mixing bowl
Measuring Spoons
Spoon or fork
Sharp knife (adult needed)

4 cups to 4.5 cups shredded cooked chicken
1⁄4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon white vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1  crisp apple, diced

  2.  Put the yogurt and mayonnaise into the small mixing bowl and mix them together with the spoon or fork.
  3.  Add the mustard and vinegar to the small bowl and mix together well.
  4.  Pour the ingredients from the small bowl into the large bowl and stir, stir, stir!

Notes
Add raisins, dried apricots, toasted walnuts, pecans or almonds if you like. 
 
If you don't like or don't have tarragon, substitute basil, cilantro, parsley, or half the amount of dill. You can even leave the herb out entirely. 
 
"Diced" means cut up in squares about the size of dice.
