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.
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 tsp chives, chopped
3 baby cos lettuce, split into 4 lengthways, washed and drained
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.
