Day 2 of #10daysoftailgate = Corn and Avocado Salsa

Woohooooo. Today is Day 2 of our tailgate party.  I hope you all had fun yesterday visiting all of our partyer's who made some terrific food to share with everyone!!  I want to put a big call out for Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla for hosting this great event!

Yesterday I shared a main course of Chili with you so today I figured I would change it up and share a quick and delicious appetizer.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!  I adapted this recipe from this one that I found on Pinterest.  You can see our entire party's contributions as well as some practice recipes and recipes from our sponsors on our #10daysoftailgate Pinterest Page.
