    Is there a way to use fresh lemon juice with active, unpasteurized yogurt, in a marinade, without the lemon juice curdling the yogurt? Thanksl

    It's a marinade, why does it matter if it curdles more than it already has?

    But you could go with just zest so you get the lemon intensity without the acid.

    Well, the marinade will also go into the sauce is the thing. I guess curdling is inevitable withthe juice.
