Double the dressing. Also, this dressing recipe was separating between the yogurt and the lemon; add a spoonful of dijon and it holds together nicely.

Added a tsp of pesto (which we had on hand from last week's meals) to the dressing because the chives weren't doing it on their own. Also cooked the corn a bit on the stove to give it more flavor.

Did weekend prep, so this was quick and easy. Per other recommendations, added nuts and cucumbers. Great summer meal. Doubled the dressing. Didn't need twice as much, but did use more then half of what e made, so glad we had the extra.

This is always so good and so easy to customize. I don't know why we don't make this more often.
