Corn Dip

For the next few days I'll be highlighting a series of appetizers. Each of these were served at my brother's high school graduation party a few weeks ago. While my mom is the primary force behind these recipes, I did play a part in preparing each of them, not to mention sampling them. Judging by the way people were attacking the appetizers before dinner, you can be assured that each of these were a success!

This corn dip in particular is a unique appetizer. It takes minimal time and effort to put together, but is a nice variation from your typical cracker dips. Not so sure? Get this...my husband Ryan, an outright hater of mayonnaise, loved this dip. Granted, he may not have realized that mayo was an ingredient, but I'd say that's a good sign!
