Tarragon Egg Salad

Tarragon Egg Salad

You know the cool thing about tarragon?

You only have to plant it once. (Assuming you don’t pull it up thinking it’s a weed when it surprises you by coming up the second year. Yes, that would be me.)

I planted a young tarragon plant in a corner of our garden several years ago, and although it dies back every winter, each spring it reemerges even more robust than the year before.

Tarragon is a lovely herb to pair with chicken or fish, and is terrific in omelettes. It also tastes great with hard boiled eggs, either deviled or in an egg salad such as this one.

My nephew Austin took one bite of this the other day and wide-eyed exclaimed “Wow, what is in this?!” as he gobbled it up.

The tarragon, along with similarly flavored fennel, adds an unexpected punch to an otherwise rather basic egg salad.
