Very nice salad. Simple but tasty. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I too added some blue cheese and also finely diced tomatoes around the edge. I also added 1 tsp. sugar to the dressing and cut the garlic down to 1 clove. Superb salad!
I am a HUGE fan of salad wedges and am always searching for variations. This dressing has a nice refreshing flavor, that my DH and I really enjoyed. After trying it I decided that I just could not live without some crumbled gorgonzola, so I added some on my wedge (my husband does not do moldy cheese). Very good!
This happens to be my most favorite salad in all the world. And this brought it all back home, when I prepared this for lunch. I made this for one serving and this was perfect that way. I just used 1 slice of uncured bacon, and some thinly sliced red onion. The dressing went together in a snap, and all was well with the world! This certainly is a time tested recipe that has stood the test of time. Thank you for posting this, Fauve! It was perfect...:D
Fauve, we loved this! I made the buttermilk dressing the night before, then added the sauteed onion and bacon right before serving. Really delicious and lovely presentation too. Thanks!
A bit too garlicky for me. I will go with 1 clove next time. The dressing turned out watery as well, but I think that was because I used an emergency substitution for buttermilk (1 cup milk, 1 Tbs. vinegar). So I used my skim milk. I'm sure the buttermilk would have been better. Using dry basil works well enough. I love the wedge presentation--much easier than tearing all that lettuce!
Such a lovely crisp, fresh tasting salad. The basil mixed with the buttermilk ranch was perfect. DH, the original meat and potatoes man, thought this was great too. Thanks Fauve and congrats on your big win in the football pool.
