To Assemble


  1. In a small bowl combine all of the dressing ingredients and set aside

  3. Preheat a small pot with oil for frying, to 325 degrees F
  4. In a small bowl coat the capers in corn starch. Remove the capers from remaining cornstarch using a sifter, discarding any residual cornstarch. Add the capers to the frying oil and cook until golden brown (approximately 2 minutes)
  5. Remove the capers from the frying oil using a wire spider - allow to cool and drain on paper towels, set aside
