help me make this recipe lower in fat

hi everyone, could you take a look at the following recipe and help me make it lower in fat? It's the dressing that is my main concern ... I especially need some help in choosing something lower in calories than the buttermilk. Guess it is not a cobb salad without eggs ... perhaps I could only put in one? thanks.

Salmon Cobb Salad in Creamy Dill Dressing

6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 cooked salmon fillets, pulled apart with 2 forks into 1-inch pieces
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1 cup shredded carrots
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons drained capers
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Arrange lettuce on a platter. Top with salmon, bacon, carrots, bell pepper, red onion, capers, eggs, and gorgonzola.

In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, buttermilk, Dijon, and dill. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and serve.
