Try this Frozen Iceberg Wedge Salad with Pistachio-Avocado Dressing on a hot summer day. Serve this side salad with grilled steaks, chicken or grilled kabobs!
I know what you are thinking, a frozen salad? Cold salads are so refreshing, and a frozen salad takes this to a whole new level.
Ya just gotta try this…
- 1 large head iceberg lettuce remove core/outer leaves
- 1 avocado peeled/pitted
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 cup pistachios use 1/2 in dressing & use 1/2 to garnish
On a cutting board, slice the head of iceberg lettuce in half, then into 1-2 wedges. Place the lettuce wedges carefully into zip top bags, and place in freezer for at least 1 hour, but no longer than 2 hours (or it will wilt).
In a high-speed blender, add the avocado, buttermilk, white wine vinegar, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup pistachios (save other 1/2 cup to garnish), lime juice. Blend until smooth. Place in a small jar, and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, place each iceberg lettuce wedge on a plate, and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with pistachios, and serve right away.
So when the temperatures soar, give this salad a try… and tell me it isn’t amazing?
Hey, this dressing is so creamy, I might have it just as a dip with veggies…
The crisp cool lettuce contrasted with the creamy dressing, and crunch of the salty pistachios is extremely delightful.
