I bought a quart of buttermilk (for cornbread) and as usual, have a lot left over. I already made a buttermilk pie this morning and don't really feel like baking anything else at the moment...however, I'd love to make a buttermilk-based salad dressing. Anyone have a good recipe for one?
And btw, why does buttermilk never seem to be sold in pints? Given that most people buy it for recipes that only call for a cup or two - that would seem to make sense.

But suddenly I have a hankering for a good salad dressing - and that one sounds perfect, Mrs. Larkin! I don't have any creme fraiche on hand, but I do have sour cream, which I often sub for it when I'm too lazy to go to the store (or too cheap)!
The sorbet sounds great too...oh hell, forget what I said about selling buttermilk in pints!
I wonder if you can freeze buttermilk? I have the same problem, always a lot leftover. Or the reverse, never have it when I need it, then do the lemon juice in the milk substitution.
Another option is buttermilk mashed potatoes.
