Chopped Salad with Spicy Pork and Buttermilk Dressing

Low-fat buttermilk is surprisingly creamy; in this Southwestern salad, it's mixed with light mayo, scallions, and garlic for a perky dressing.

Cook's Notes

To neatly cut up a head of romaine, halve it through the core and make a few evenly spaced cuts lengthwise, leaving core intact. Chop crosswise into bite-size pieces.

    This one's a keeper. It was served as a quick dinner on a warm evening. Used homemade chili powder instead of chipotle, and a salad mix of dark greens instead of romaine. I'd never broiled a pork loin before, and cooked it per the directions. It was 141 degrees in 16 minutes (I turned it four times) so you can't get any better than that. I doubled the dressing recipe so I'd have some for lunch salads the rest of the week. I'll definitely make this again.

    Very yummy. Substituted 2t smoked paprika for the chipotle powder as we don't care for super spicy. Also used applewood smoked cheddar instead of pepper jack. My 8yo daughter says "awesome!" We will definitely make this again :)
