6 tablespoons buttermilk

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons finely chopped shallot

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 head Boston lettuce, torn into pieces

2 medium navel oranges

1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered

1/2 cup pitted dates, thinly sliced crosswise


  1. For the dressing: Whisk together the buttermilk, lemon juice, shallots and tarragon in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. For the salad: In a bowl, coat the lettuce with all but 1/4 cup of the dressing. Arrange the lettuce on individual serving plates.
  3. Cut off the top and bottom of each orange, just exposing the flesh. With a sharp knife, follow the curve of the fruit to cut away the peel, completely removing the white pith. Slice out each segment of fruit, cutting in along the membrane. Divide the oranges, strawberries and dates among the plates. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.
