Cherry Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich

Last week I had a bag of cherries leftover from my delicious Bourbon Bacon Cherry Crumble and a bunch of fresh tarragon left from preparing my Zucchini Corn Cakes with Tarragon Remoulade, so I decided to combine the two in a scrumptious Chicken Salad!

Sticking with my “Glutenless in August” theme, I picked up a loaf of Rudi’s Multigrain Gluten Free Bread.

I’m not BS-ing you here, this is some of the best bread I’ve ever had! It was really flavorful and toasted up perfectly for the base of my Chicken Salad Sandwich.

In an effort to not overwhelm the delicious chicken salad, I kept the sandwich open face and simply piled it on top of fresh spinach.

I prepared this sandwich for myself and my producer last week.

This delicious sandwich is perfect for a simple lunch to take to work or school!
