Tossed Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
This low-fat buttermilk dressing is lower in carbohydrate than most commercial low-fat salad dressings because, in many of those low-fat dressings, sugar or other sweeteners are added to take the place of fat.

  • 2 cups tightly packed torn leaf lettuce
  • 1 1/4 cups halved cherry tomatoes
