    Hi Elise, I’m in Sri Lanka. We don’t get Tarragon here. Nevertheless, this picture looks so appealing and I really really want to try this out. Could you please tell me how Tarragon tastes like. Then probably I can think of a substitute that is available here. Thanks a lot…

    I’m really really enjoying your blog. Thanks a lot for so many inspiring ideas.

    Hi Nis, it tastes like fennel. You could use some ground toasted fennel seeds in the salad, or use some freshly chopped fennel fronds (leaves).

    Wow…. Delicious! Eating it now! Try to use the best eggs available to you (from a local farmer raising pastured chickens, I’d recommend). The better the eggs the better the egg salad. YUM.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I usually dry most of my tarragon; would that work in this recipe?

    Hi Trish, I haven’t tried it with dried tarragon given that I have so much fresh. But if you do try it with dried (I would use 1/3 as much), please let us know how it turns out. ~Elise

    Tarragon rocks! I have it in my little greenhouse and I’m on my second season with one plant. It doesn’t do the bolting thing or flowering so it’s really a trouble free herb.

    Used it in tuna cheesies last night and it made comfort sandwiches a bit elegant.. this recipe looks awesome and can’t wait to try it. Might use dill instead of fennel.

    I think the dill would compete with the tarragon. Completely different flavors. Fennel is similarly flavored to tarragon, and just enhances it in this salad. ~Elise
