napa cabbage salad with buttermilk dressing (smittenkitchen.com)

http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/07/napa-cabbage-salad-with-buttermilk-dressing/. The dressing is a simple blend of buttermilk, apple cider vinegar, a touch of mayo, shallots, sugar, salt and pepper but the flavor is anything but. This is my new go-to creamy dressing. I am sure it would equally delicious with some crumbled blue cheese mixed in, if you’re into that kind of thing. The dressing would be really great on an iceberg wedge or romaine hearts salad, or any kind of everything-but-the-kitch
