Buttermilk and Avocado dressing-idea

I'm going to try this tonight so will hope for the best...Since I love avocados and have some plus some buttermilk, here is what I'm doing.
Putting a large avocado, peeled and pitted in my blender, adding 3 green onions white and part of the green, some lemon juice, 4 tablespoons of parsley (flat leaf) but some basil might be nice here. Salt and pepper, I wizzed it up and added 3/4 c. buttermilk or more if you like. Blend it all again so it looks like a thick cream..I'm putting this over an endive and escarole salad with sliced sweet onions and tomatoes..On it's own it tastes pretty good, we shall see how it flies as a dressing on greens.

I can do that right now licia I couldn't wait til dinner so my lunch was a salad with the dressing. I loved it..The dressing does call for a lettuce like the endive and escarole, it would beatt down a soft lettuce like butter..But the heaveir lettuces with it are great. It might also be good over a gelatin salad such as Uncle Bob mentions in his post..But at any rate I really liked it and plan to make it again and maybe add a little more lemon..

UB,
please do steal the recipe, I'm more than happy to hand it over I like your idea of the tomato aspic, I would imagine any gelatin salad with lots of veggies, would take the dressing as well. Ahhh, more salad ideas.. HUM wonder how a molded salad with shrimp,celery, sliced green onions would be with the dressing over it?Thanks

Now if I can whip that up, I'll have to do and say as Carson and Olivia do, when they have candy or a toy they won't share, you run like the dickens shouting MINE
