½ cup Asher Blue cheese, crumbled (about ½ lb. worth of cheese)
6 large basil leaves, cut into thin strips
Cut the base off your leaf lettuce, and arrange your lettuce leaves on a large platter or bowl.
Layer the cherry tomatoes, bacon, avocado and blue cheese on top of the lettuce and then top with the fresh basil strips. (note: if you are not serving immediately, hold off on cutting into the avocado to avoid oxidation and cut into that just prior to serving)
Serve immediately with the buttermilk dressing.
Buttermilk Dressing Ingredients:
1 cup mayonnaise (we prefer Sir Kensington’s)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Pinch of sea salt
Couple twists of black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
