Expert Tips

Leave the chopped cilantro out of the dressing and serve it on the side in a separate small bowl, so guests can sprinkle it on their salads if they choose.

When corn is in season, use cooked fresh corn instead of canned, if you prefer.

This salad dressing will also add zip to your favorite sandwiches and burgers, too!
