Recipe of the Day: 10/30

Happy (almost!) Halloween, Nesties! We hope you're not like some of us (ahem -- me) and searching frantically-at-the-last-minute for the right party dip or appetizer to bring to your party tomorrow night...but just in case you are, we've got you covered. We're continuing our Nestie Recipe of the Day feature with this recipe for corn, tomato, and avocado salad from Nestie Mrs.DW_instead. We love the fresh, clean flavors of this dish, and like Mrs.DW_instead, we also love cilantro! This is a great dip or appetizer to bring to any tailgate or holiday party -- it's delicious and practically guilt-free! It's also a cinch to throw together...you know, just in case.
