      What a wonderful salad to have on a hot steamy night like the one I am having! The creaminess of the avocado dressing is wonderful with the additional tang of the vinegar, and just perfect with the saltiness of the pistachios! I'd definitely add the grape tomatoes.....they are so good with this dressing. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe! Made for Photo Tag.

      A lovely salad! I used plain almond milk instead of buttermilk, just used a little less. Thanks! Made for Sping Pick a Chef event 2014

      UPDATE: I have made this with frozen buttermilk and 1/4 avocado (mashed with a little lemon) that I had froze. I was surprised at how well it turned out. I added some roasted garlic that I had on hand and the rest was the same. This just turned into my "go to" salad recipe!!! Yummers!!! Mar 2/13: I really enjoyed this salad....but I did make some changes, I added about 1/2 tsp garlic, salt, pepper and 2 shots of hot sauce. I served this over baby romaine lettuce, craisins, pistachios, strawberries and the other half of the avocdo. Yummy! The colours from this salad was very appealing! The tang from the buttermilk gives a really nice taste. I had found this recipe in Real Magazine, so I am glad that it was already posted!!!
