Tarragon is wonderful! Think Green Goddess dressing - You can make a vinaigrette w/ tarragon, basil, green onions, mint garlic, parsley & dijon
Cream sauce w/ anchovies, tarragon, parsley butter & garlic
or a cream sauce using tarragon, shallots, garlic & thyme
you can toss it in a pasta w/ shrimp, lemon peel chives, leeks & thyme
or make it into a finishing butter for broiled chicken using butter, shallots, tarragon, parsley, parmesan and mint.
Thank you. Tarragon is one of my favorite spices. Basil, mint, and thyme sound like wonderful choices. Pardon my pun.
Tarragon is one of the herbs in the French blend called fines herbs,so it works great with parsley, chervil, chives, marjoram, lovage, or dill all of which can be found in various versions of fines herbs.
Tarragon goes really well with citrus flavors and is great in egg dishes, cream sauces and seafood dishes. It's also nice just torn and added to green salads.
I tend to blend it with basil and/or thyme. Along with some garlic, this mixture makes a nice blend for rice.
