Buttermilk Lemon Salad Dressing

Salad days are here. It's already gotten hot, hot, hot in Colorado and that means lots of salad. My garden is full of beautiful lettuce and arugula this time of year. This dressing is so simple and the perfect complement to fresh, crisp lettuce. It's also wonderful on salads with seafood - lemon is always a good seasoning for fish.

This dressing is full of flavor, fresh, and inexpensive.

Buttermilk Lemon Salad Dressing
(makes about 6-8 servings, about ½ cup; total cost is 80 cents)

¼ cup fresh buttermilk
¼ cup mayonnaise
the zest of 1 lemon
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (the juice of ½ a lemon)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Whisk together all the ingredients until combined. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
