This recipe uses cultured coconut milk as a substitution for buttermilk and mayonnaise in a dill-flavored, creamy salad dressing. Enjoy! I found an alternative to dairy-based yogurt. Cultured coconut milk is not as thick as yogurt, but it works as a sub for buttermilk and mayonnaise in a traditional ranch-style salad dressing or dip. It's not a perfect sub, but for anyone who is avoiding dairy, it's worth a try. Look for this product in the yogurt section of your grocer. It's also great in smoothies!

This is really good. It's true that it is runnier than a buttermilk dressing but it doesn't matter. The taste is fantastic. I'm not lactose intolerant or have any issues with dairy and still loved this. It is a nice change to a usual dressing without additives or useless fats! This can definitely be used in place of any ranch or buttermilk dressing. Thank you Bibi!! Update: I added 2 tsp of dried coconut pulp (leftover from making coconut milk) and that thickened this up a bit without giving it any coconut flavour!!:-) Read More

Simple and very tasty! Cultured coconut milk is coconut yogurt. Easy to find unsweetened in health food stores but harder to find on regular grocery stores. My son even likes it! Read More

Fabulous! I couldn't find cultured coconut milk but canned coconut milk works fine. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and the taste and consistency is better than I ever could have hoped! Read More

Made it with the canned coconut milk. What a great recipe! I am lactose intolerant and love creamy dressing. Store bought dressings are filled with sodium and sugar. I guess coconut milk isn't perfect but this makes me happy with salad again. Read More
