Recipe FAQs

What substitutions can be made?

You can use plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. If you want a thicker dressing, add a little bit less buttermilk. Likewise, if you want it to be thinner, add a little more buttermilk or extra apple cider vinegar.

How do I make a larger batch of dressing?

You can adjust the serving size directly in the recipe card to make a larger batch of dressing.

Is this dressing healthy? 

This dressing has a nice balance of ingredients, with plenty of protein and calcium. It also has a fair amount of fat and calories so it’s best to not use in excess.
