Sometimes I need to mix and match. Marry the flavors because well... I just like them all so I can't choose.
Thus inspired this savory summer salad. A cheesy buttermilk dressing, grilled corn, a beautiful tomato and some caramelized onions. Yep - I couldn't choose ... so they all came together for me in a rather tasty salad.

bibb lettuce or romaine will do - I cut mine in wedges for fun
roasted corn - corn rubbed in olive oil cooked on the grill until done! Then sliced off the cob
one beautiful tomato - sliced thick
1 or 2 onions sliced super thin and caramelized in olive oil or butter
buttermilk dressing by ann west
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 c sour cream
1 shallot minced
3-4 basil leaves
3-4 mint leaves
1 tbls of cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
dash or two of cayenne pepper
Mix the creamy ingredients first. Then add your herbs chopped very fine. If you are using a processor - don't over process or you will have a green goddess dressing.
