    I have no use for this non fat Buttermilk dressing as I no longer use the horrible fat free buttermilk. When you can find me a loaded buttermilk dressing I will try it. Thanks for this, but no thanks!

      Hi Carol- I didn’t use nonfat anything in the recipe, but you can certainly use full-fat versions of buttermilk, yogurt and sour cream!
