Hot weather, cool salad
I've had a busy weekend. Went to an estate auction upstate Friday night to Saturday. Got some great buys...more about that after I unpack the truck!
It's way too hot to cook....just last week I was making soup to take the chill off!
I've been wanting to try buttermilk dressing like we had at The Farm on Adderly a couple of weeks ago. Sarah made some and posted a photo on her blog on June 4th...it looked great.
Here is my version. Dressing: Whisk together mayonnaise and buttermilk add a small garlic clove crushed with salt then season with pepper and snipped chives.
I used Boston lettuce, peas, (not fresh....I cooked frozen just a minute or two and quick chilled in ice water.) I added shrimp to make it a main dish and radishes fresh from the farm market.
Perfect on a 90 degree day!
