  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 T parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced and the zest of 1
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
  • 8 anchovies fillets, roughly chopped
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil

Halve and stone the avocados. Scoop out the flesh and place it in a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk, parsley, lime juice and garlic.

Blend until smooth using either an electric hand blender or food processor. Season lightly with salt.

Spoon the dressing into a bowl and scatter with the anchovies, lime zest and spring onion. Drizzle over the olive oil. Serve the dressing with cos lettuce, using the leaves to scoop it up.
