Romaine and Radish Salad With Buttermilk Lemon Dressing

2 hearts of romaine (the lighter, more delicate inner part of a head of romaine lettuce)
1 cup thinly sliced radishes (about 1 bunch)
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped chives, or a mixture of chives and tarragon

For the buttermilk dressing:
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, puréed
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
5 tablespoons buttermilk
Freshly ground pepper

1. Combine the romaine, radishes and herbs in a large salad bowl.
2. Whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, salt, olive oil and buttermilk. Just before serving, toss with the salad mix. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, toss again, and serve. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

Advance preparation: You can combine the ingredients in Step 1 and refrigerate for an hour or two. The dressing can be made about 1 hour ahead.
