We made this for Thanksgiving and I'm getting ready to make it again for our family's Christmas gathering...that's how good it was! Everyone loves it. Most of us tend to like our food less spicy, so I used 1 jalapeno with the seeds removed, very finely chopped. I also made sure the onions were chopped fairly finely. I added 1C of frozen corn, warmed up in the microwave, but not overcooked...it was still nice and firm. I used a bit more than 3/4 of the bottle of zesty Italian, since a full bottle seemed a bit too much. My husband doesn't care for bell peppers or tomatoes, so I also made half of the batch without either of them. That can ruin a lot of recipes, but not this one. He gave it 5 stars as modified. We were in the mood for experimenting, so I made another batch of the other texas caviar recipe where you make your own dressing. Our diverse bunch (from a 2 year old to teenagers to grandparents) enjoyed both versions, but preferred this version. We made the texas caviars the night before...about 24 hours ahead of time (with the cilantro mixed in) and thought it just got better and better as the flavors melded. It's really nice to be able to make it ahead of time. YUM! Thanks for the recipe!!
