2 cups fresh salad greens

½ cup sour cream
½ cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 medium clove garlic, minced (about ½ teaspoon)
1 tablespoons, fresh garlic chives, snipped
1 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper

1. Whisk together the sour cream, buttermilk, cider vinegar and sugar.
2. Stir in the garlic and fresh herbs.
3. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Pour the dressing over the mixed greens and toss.

Yield about 1 cup

Sidebar: Buttermilk is a cultured product made by adding bacteria to skim milk. Originally buttermilk was the liquid left behind when cream was turned into butter. Today’s product is thick and tangy - a perfect ingredient for a sharp salad dressing and easily balanced with the addition of sugar.
