Chicken Pea Shoot Salad With Tarragon Aioli

Chicken Pea Shoot Salad With Tarragon Aioli

Pea shoots have a rich flavor that is distinctly summery and fresh. Yukon Gold baby fingerling potatoes in particular are perfect for grilling because they cook quickly and have a nearly creamy texture. This simplified aioli is simply a garlicky mayonnaise, a southern French delicacy that goes great with grilled or roasted veggies.
