Green Goddess Coleslaw

This is the time of year for salad and anything cool.  I found a wonderful coleslaw recipe on P. Allen Smith's website that I just love.  It contains anchovy paste, which is an odd ingredient for slaw, plus Tarragon vinegar.  I went to three stores to find the tarragon vinegar though. Don't turn up your nose until you try this. I was pleasantly surprised.  


3 tbs tarragon vinegar
2 tbs anchovy paste
2 cups of shredded cabbage
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp white pepper
salt to taste
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup green onion, chopped
1/3 cup Italian parsley, chopped

Make the dressing first. In a blender add the garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, anchovy paste, and tarragon vinegar.  Blend well.  Then add the green onions and parsley, then blend again.  Add the mayonnaise and sour cream, blend until smooth.  Put the cabbage in a bowl and fold in the dressing, mix until the cabbage is totally coated.  Chill until ready to serve.

Cooks Note:  I put the green onions and parsley in with the cabbage.
