Hot day on the deck? Pass the chicken salad, please.

Lisa Bryan, founder of downshiftology (downshiftology.com), said she loves that you can serve chicken salad as a standalone dish, wrap or sandwich for a versatile meal option. 

"Chicken salad is a classic, but the tarragon in this recipe takes it to the next level and makes it simply scrumptious," Bryan of California told Fox News Digital, noting that whenever she serves this dish, her guests typically return for seconds and thirds.

"You can also make several variations of chicken salad based on your preference for flavor and texture, like swapping the almonds for pecans or walnuts or omitting the grapes and adding diced apples, dried cranberries or dried cherries," said Bryan.
