Tart, cooling plain yogurt adds a pleasant tang to this salad bar staple. Try it with our easy Buffalo Chicken Wings recipe.

What to buy: Look for organic, whole-milk plain yogurt. Most organic brands that have “cream on top” are more fluid because they contain fewer stabilizers.

Game plan: If you’re using yogurt that’s not very tangy, you may need to add a little more vinegar.
