salada2 [1]This week the swap is hosted by Cheryl at GF Goodness [2] with a seasonal theme of asparagus and/or strawberries, presumably not in the same dish. (Although she tempted me to think of a way to use them together- so intriguing!) You can find more great menus with Org Junkie.

Lately I’ve been in a real salad mood. It helps that the DH loves nothing more than having a nice fresh salad when he comes home from work. I’ve been experimenting with some more traditional dressings, and I found that this light buttermilk dressing based on a cooking light recipe really hit the spot and complimented grilled mushrooms perfectly. I hope you enjoy it!

1/3 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/4 cup lowfat canola mayonnaise
