The buttermilk dressing gives this salad a fantastic, tart flavour that works well with the sweet crunch of cos lettuce. This makes a great side to a nice piece of barbecued steak.

Ingredients

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp sweet paprika

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp salt

black pepper

1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped

1 tsp chives, chopped

3 baby cos lettuce, split into 4 lengthways, washed and drained

Method

In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk and mayonnaise.

Add the remaining dressing ingredients, adjusting for taste. Lay the cos on a plate, cut side facing up.

Spoon the dressing over and serve immediately.

Serve with Frank's flank steak.
