Pea & Lima Bean Buttermilk Salad

I don’t usually post other people’s recipes here on RGK but when I found this recipe in Food&Wine Magazine last month and just had to give it a try. I love spring peas and this salad doesn’t disappoint. I love that this salad is so fresh and colorful. Plus, I simplified the original a bit by using frozen lima beans and peas!


1 cup of frozen lima beans, thawed

1 cup sweet peas, thawed

2-3 cups of lettuce, arugula, butter lettuce or baby lettuces

1 avocado

For the dressing:

1 egg yolk

3 tablespoons of buttermilk

1/2 cup of olive oil

1 garlic clove

3 tablespoons of grated parmesan

Blend all of the dressing ingredients on low in a blender for food processor


Arrange a platter and drizzle dressing across the top.
