Summer is in full swing, and if you haven’t done it already, it’s time for those backyard barbecues, poolside parties or picnics in the park!

Whatever the occasion, cool summer salads are a refreshing way to beat the heat. This tarragon chicken recipe combines melons — which are in abundance and so tasty this time of year — and fresh herbs that you gardeners out there probably have growing in your garden or in a pot on your deck. If not, pick some up at the store. Tarragon adds a unique flavor to this delicious salad.
