With this recipe, you don't need to go out and buy a $3 bottle of buttermilk to get the great flavor of buttermilk dressing. Use the old substitution of whole milk and lemon... Things we usually have on hand anyway!
1 cup whole Milk
Zest and juice of 1/2 Lemon
5 tablespoons Mayonnaise
1/2 small Shallot, finely minced
11/2 teaspoons House Seasoning*
1 bunch Romaine Hearts, sliced
1 bunch Watercress, trimmed
1 bunch Radishes, thinly sliced
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and lemon juice; let stand until milk thickens, about 5 minutes. Add lemon zest, mayonnaise, shallots, and house seasoning. Whisk to combine, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Place romaine, watercress and radishes in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss to combine; cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Top with Croutons and Parmesan Cheese, if desired.
1 cup salt 1/4 cup black pepper 1/4 cup garlic powder
