Radish & Avocado Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

This creamy homemade dressing is better than any bottled ranch. Show it off on this simple green salad and serve with barbecued ribs, chicken, or pulled pork.


  • 2 Tbs. buttermilk
  • 2 Tbs. sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 minced clove garlic
  • 1/2 Tbs. thinly sliced chives
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce, leaves separated
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced, lightly salted

    Making this again for the 3rd time. Delicious flavor...even the teenagers love it! I serve it with Fine Cooking's Chimichurri Roast Chicken Legs.
