  • cook's illustrated herb-crusted salmon
    Tarragon is a key ingredient in several of our favorite dishes. Since each recipe calls for teaspoons or at most tablespoons of this herb at a time, we always end up with unused tarragon. This recipe is a great way to make use of leftover tarragon and is super delicious! It requires some brining and multi-step prep, but the end result is very much worth it. saltwaterskin-on salmon filletsunsalted butterpanko bread crumbssaltpepperbeaten eggfresh thymeDijon mustardmayonnaisefresh tarragonlemon wedges
  • ina garten's herb potato salad
    This is a delicious version of potato salad that has tons of flavor without the mayo. It works great for a party because it can be prepared in advance and then pulled out of the fridge when guests arrive. The technique of resting the drained potatoes with a covered kitchen towel yields a tender, tasty potato. It balances out dishes with bold flavor profiles, but also pairs great with subtle flavors. We prepared this as a side for the Bocadillos lamb burger, and paired it with sweet and spicy Korean chicken wings. boiling potatoeskosher saltwhite winechicken stocklemon juicegarlicdijon mustardkosher saltblack pepperolive oilred oniontarragonparsleysalt and pepper
  • jacques pepin's tilapia with herb cream sauce
    This cream sauce is made from the same base as the greens with cream dressing. For a very quick and delicious meal, all you need to do is poach the fish and whip up the sauce. salttilapiaheavy creamsaltfreshly ground black pepperred wine vinegarfresh tarragonchivesfresh thymebottled horseradish
  • mrs. braganza's thyme and tarragon chicken
    This is one of our favorite chicken dishes, and it is crazy easy to make. We've been cooking it since college and learned it from our friend's mom. Something magical happens when the flavors of the thyme, tarragon, mayo, and dijon combine and intensify. This recipe easily scales. Just remember the proportions of 1 teaspoon of each herb (dried) and 1 tablespoon of each sauce per chicken breast. You may need to adjust cooking times depending on the thickness and quantity of your chicken breast pieces. fresh thymefresh tarragonmayonnaisedijon mustardchicken breaststeamed rice or cooked quinoa
