Buttermilk Dressing

The beautiful spring weather inspired me to plan a fresh salad bar for dinner. Bart prepared the meal for us--prepping tons of fresh ingredients and even making us homemade dressing. This dressing made the salad even better than we could have imagined. You might want to double the recipe so you can enjoy it for a couple of days!

Buttermilk Dressing

5 tablespoons buttermilk
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced green onion tops
1 teaspoon minced garlic
¼ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
¼ teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning (you can buy Emeril's Original Essence or use the recipe below to make your own seasoning blend)

Whisk all ingredients together in a nonreactive mixing bowl. Use immediately, or store in a covered nonreactive container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Yield: 1 cup

Creole Seasoning

2 ½ tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Yield: 2/3 cup
