Corn Guacamole Dip

Here lies a twist to guacamole.  This recipe offers a refreshing burst of flavor into one’s mouth.  The best part is that it is so easy to make!  It can be used as a side dish, part of an entree (could be used as a spread for a sandwich or burger), or as an appetizer.  I myself, used it as a prelude to dinnertime, and was an absolute success.  As an appetizer it was served with both crudités and tortilla chips.  As the health fanatic that I am – I opted for the celery which resulted in a fantastic crunch – satisfying my craving.  This dish is low in sodium which makes it ideal for those of you work are watching your sodium intake or looking for some new vegetarian dishes.

Bon appetite!
