J. Alexander's Restaurant Recipe 

2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 sour cream
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup blue cheese, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
3 cups green cabbage, shredded, chopped or grated
1 cup red cabbage, shredded, chopped or grated
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped parsley

In a mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, buttermilk,  Worcestershire sauce and black pepper. Fold cheese into dressing with a rubber spatula, taking care not to  break cheese pieces. This should be made in advance and refrigerated for up to 2 hours before blending with cabbage mixture. Spin cabbages well to remove moisture. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine green cabbages, carrots and parsley. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Combine dressing and cabbage mixture and serve immediately.
