One of my favorite restaurants in the Pasadena area is Julienne’s. Julienne’s is actually in San Marino on Mission Street. It’s an adorable restaurant with a gourmet market & gift shop attached. If I’m there at lunch, I usually order the Chicken Taragon Salad Sandwich. It’s truly the BEST chicken salad sandwich ever! And, it’s served on a yummy rosemary currant bread.
I had a craving for the salad a few weeks ago and ending up finding a recipe that had been posted in the LA Times years ago. It’s been a hit with my family!
Julienne’s Chicken Taragon Salad
4 – 5 stalks Celery, finely chopped
3 – 5 Green Onions, finely chopped
1 bunch fresh Tarragon leaves, chopped
1/2 cup Mayonaise
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. White Pepper
4 Chicken breast halves, poached and chopped
Herb Bread (preferably rosemary), sliced and toasted
1. Combine celery, green onions, tarragon, mayonnaise, salt and white pepper. Mix well. Pour over chicken and toss to coat chicken well.
2. Spread chicken salad mixture on lightly toasted bread.
- I have used Rosemary Bread (from Costco) as well as a Raisin Bread for the sandwiches. Both are delicious.
- Raisins, chopped toasted almonds or walnuts are also nice additions to the salad.
