Wonderful dressing on a flavorful salad - I used owdered Buttermilk and otherwise followed the recipe to a tee - Thank-you Barb for a tasty side salad that will go with almost any meal. This dressing would be good on a plain mixed greeen salad as well. I love the calorie count for this recipe!!!!

A very good side salad, the tarragon gives the dressing almost a licorice taste.
