I made this recipe from Epicurious for a book group meeting I was attending with friends, but since I still had to cook dinner for my family, I just decided to make a big double batch for them. I had never cooked with tarragon before, so I was a tad nervous at whether it would be good or not and I got even more nervous when I chopped the fresh tarragon and was totally convinced it smelled like black licorice (not my favorite). But when I made a little sample sandwich for myself to try before sharing it with my friends I found it so delightfully tasty that my little sample soon turned into a much larger sandwich sized snack! :) Surprisingly my kids totally adored the complex flavors too and were begging me to make it again soon!
By the way, if you totally want a fun book group read, let me suggest one of my childhood favorites, "Anne of Green Gables". We all dressed up, wore white gloves, brought Anne-ish foods (like this egg salad), made raspberry cordial, and had a fantastic time discussing Anne and Gilbert and all our favorite quotes. I totally felt like a little girl again having a tea party with her friends.
