Back to all recipes

As the weather warms up and summer creeps in, we are on the hunt for lighter, more refreshing dishes to serve at family gatherings, BBQ’s with friends, and those beloved all-day-long pool parties. Because so many classic summer side dishes we all know and love contain heavy creams or mayos, we were thinking of ways to lighten things up a little. Notorious for its versatility in sauces and marinades, we knew this was a job for our Lactose Free Whole Milk Yogurt. We decided to swap out the mayo, and add in our plain yogurt for a creamier, lighter version of one of our favorite pasta salads that we plan to enjoy all summer, and know you will too!
