A question about a recipe: Dilled, Crunchy Sweet-Corn Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

I have a question about the recipe "Dilled, Crunchy Sweet-Corn Salad with Buttermilk Dressing" from creamtea.

I want to make this salad but I need to avoid using buttermilk because of lactose intolerance (yogurt is fine). I know leaving out the buttermilk changes the essence of the salad, but is there a substitute you would recommend? Do you think I could just increase the amounts of vinegar and yogurt?

Thanks!

I would, of course, omit the buttermilk and add a squeeze of lemon. There's probably enough dressing that you don't need more yogurt, but I'd taste to see if it might need more vinegar--the buttermilk is tangy. The lemon will add the tang and a burst of freshness but you may need a bit more vinegar. I think tasting is the key here.

Hi Zoem, I contributed the recipe. I have a daughter w/lactose intolerance. Before adding the lemon, I would taste first. I might leave out the vinegar altogether and use only the lemon juice and perhaps some zest as well for a different taste. As a lemonholic,(we had a tree in our backyard) I seem to add lemon to almost everything except when there is vinegar involved, since it seems to bring out an off flavor when they are combined. So I left it out of this recipe. In any case, you'll want to balance the tangy w/ a bit of salt if it gets too tart. In the end, it is a recipe you can easily play around with.

Thanks, creamtea! I can't wait to try it. I just started growing dill so I'm excited for ways to use it.
