Curry Butternut Buttermilk Dressing

Curry Butternut Buttermilk Dressing

Last week we made maple vanilla creamer and pumpkin spice butter. Today, we’re making another Seasons with Soul original recipe–Curry Butternut Buttermilk Dressing. 

It combines the goodness of home-roasted butternut squash with creamy organic, whole milk buttermilk. {I do culture my own, and it’s quite simple, but that’s another post :)} Add a dash of curry and some plain yogurt, and you have a healthy and deliciously tangy dressing, with a global feel.

The great news is this recipe is very forgiving. If you follow the basic ratio of squash to buttermilk to yogurt to spice, you can tweak things. So, you don’t feel like roasting your own squash and have an open can of pumpkin puree? Fine, you can use that. So, you’re not crazy about yogurt and would rather have the richer taste of mayo? Fine there too. Maybe you want to use less curry powder or replace the garlic powder with a clove or two of fresh minced or pressed garlic? Fine, and fine. Salad dressings are forgiving like that.

Curry Butternut Buttermilk Dressing

1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup butternut squash puree (or any pureed or mashed winter squash, like acorn or pumpkin)
1/4 cup mayo and/or plain yogurt
3/4 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
a few grinds of fresh pepper

Mix well. Store in the fridge for a week.

If you’re wondering how to use the dressing, let’s start with the obvious–salads. I made a simple harvest salad with leaf lettuce, dried cranberries, and toasted chopped walnuts, topped with the Curry Butternut Buttermilk Dressing. If I do say so myself, it was quite tasty.

This recipe would also make a fabulous sandwich condiment–imagine it dressing up a whole-wheat turkey wrap with shredded kale and chopped sundried tomatoes–or used as a creative dressing on a rice or quinoa salad.

Next week, I’ll show you how to make Pumpkin Slow Cooker Lasagna–just in time for Halloween!
