Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich

Fresh grapes are added to this chicken salad for a burst of flavor and nutritional value. Besides supplying fiber and vitamin A, grapes are low in calories, which makes them a great snack food. Green grapes that have a tinge of yellow and red grapes that are predominantly crimson will be the sweetest.
