Recipe Notes

  1. I sometimes swap plain white vinegar for fresh lemon juice, both acids work beautifully well in the dressing.
  2. Either sour cream or yogurt can be used for this recipe, just make sure you have ½ cup of whatever cream you choose to use. I often prefer a combination of both.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
