Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Tarragon Spiced Walnuts & Grapes

Tea Sandwiches part 2 includes this chicken salad sandwich tossed with crisp red grapes, scallions and walnuts tossed in a sweet and savory tarragon blend.
Because this salad spread is so hearty, it also works great in butter lettuce cups or endive spears.

Tarragon Spiced Walnuts
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1 tbl extra virgin olive oil
2 tbl organic cane sugar
2 tbl water
1 tbl minced fresh tarragon
salt and pepper

Over medium-low heat, toss the walnuts and olive oil together. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the sugar and toss. Cook 2 more minutes. Add the water, tarragon and season with salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes more until the nuts are toasted and start to get sticky.
Let cool on a plate.
