- 4 tablespoons buttermilk or 4 tablespoons yogurt

- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar

- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

I really enjoyed this salad! I loved the maple syrup in it! It was crunchy and yummy. Thanks! Made for PAC event-Fall 2009.
Just reading the recipe has made me want to go and make it again! The crispness of the vegetables blended with the creamy dressing is just lovely. I have used walnuts in this when I didn't have pecans and it still tasted wonderful. It is a super accompaniment to the Buttermilk Chicken. I always have to make plenty so that we can all have salad lunches the next day.
