Post subject: Mac And Cheese Salad
WITH BUTTERMILK DRESSING

Yield: 6 to 8 generous servings

Kosher salt

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh chives

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons minced shallots

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Freshly ground black pepper

1 pound shaped pasta, such as fusilli, farfalle or cavatappi

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

3 ounces (about 3/4 cup) pecorino Romano cheese

3 cups loosely packed baby spinach

Step 1: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, make
the dressing. Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream and buttermilk in a medium
bowl. Add chives, dill, garlic, shallots and lemon juice. Whisk again. Season
with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 2: Add pasta to boiling water; cook until al dente. Drain pasta
and immediately run it under cold water until cool. Drain well.

Step 3: Transfer pasta to a large bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold
in enough dressing to coat it generously. Fold in green onions, cheese and baby
spinach. Mound the salad on a large platter and serve.
