This makes enough dressing for us to use on future salads. It is absolutely delicious. I am not a fan of Lima beans but this salad is the exception. You can use frozen sweet corn when fresh is out of season, I just put it in a colander and run warm water over the corn while I am working on other things to thaw but not cook.
