I can't believe no one has recommended buttermilk pie! One of my favorite sweet dishes, and a very old tradition in many families:

In my family, my great, great grandma used to make buttermilk pie. Highly recommended.

Put one cup buttermilk in a blender container, Add fruit--perhaps a handful of strawberries, a peach, a champagne mango, whatever is in season, and a bit of honey or sugar. Blend til smooth and frothy. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

I use a lot of buttermilk -- regular items include:

Merrill's Saag Paneer ;

Jennifer Perillo's Creamy Homemade Ricotta (I have a batch draining right now, in fact) ; and

Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread:

Have fun! ;o)

Make creme fraiche! Mix 2 cups of pasteurized heavy cream with 1/4 cup buttermilk. Let stand, covered, at room temperature for 12-24 hours, or until thick like heavy cream. Keeps in fridge for about a week. great with desserts, or stirred into soups, eggs, pasta.. Recipe is from Patricia Wells' Bistro Cooking.

Mashed potatoes! Use instead of milk, cream, and butter. They turn out wonderful....

Here's a link to a recipe for tarragon buttermilk dressing used on a Boston greens/pears/hazlenut salad. If you've got a hankering for something sweet here is a great fudge recipe:
