Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    When corn is in season, use cooked fresh corn instead of canned, if you prefer.
  • tip 3
    This salad dressing will also add zip to your favorite sandwiches and burgers, too!
