With as many variations as salsa, Texas Caviar is a classic dip in the Lone Star State. To some, it’s not complete without a good dousing of bottled Italian dressing, but we forgo that and let the pickled jalapeños, roasted corn, and fresh dressing do the talking.

Game plan: The dip can be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in a covered container.
Store-bought pickled jalapeños would work fine in this recipe, or you could make your own.
