The Salad:

  • 6 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 hothouse cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, deseeded and chopped

The Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • In a medium bowl, add all dressing ingredients and blend well. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for about an hour.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and peppers. Mix in the desired amount of dressing and serve.


You can use the dressing immediately but it's best when left in the fridge a bit to get cool and creamier!
