Miracle Corn 'n cliantro

This is a super easy recipe that is very tasty. I don't know where I originally got this recipe but I guess that means it is tried, tested, and true since I have had it for so long!

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, stemmed
1/2 cup miracle whip salad dressing
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
3 cups frozen whole kernel corn, thawed and drained
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

*since the recipe calls for salt and pepper I put it there but I rarely add salt and pepper to my dishes; I prefer to let people season to their own taste and it cuts down on sodium intake. If you look closely you will also notice that I did not put cilantro in this particular batch which is odd since it is a main ingredient. I was unalbe to get cilantro at my grocery store this time around so I added a little lemon grass that I had bought pre-chopped in a tube and some dill!
