Our answer

Nigella's Asparagus, Radish and New Potato Salad showcases seasonal ingredients in a delicious salad that can be a main course or a side dish. The dressing uses buttermilk, which gives a lighter, fresher taste than oil-based dressings.

We would suggest using your favourite plant-based yogurt as an alternative to the buttermilk, but it should be be a plain, unsweetened yogurt. Some plant-based yogurts are naturally slightly more sweet than buttermilk, so once you have whisked the dressing ingredients together, taste the dressing and add a few extra drops of lemon juice if you need to increase the acidity of the dressing slightly.
