Food Fare Friday

Years ago I was traveling quite a bit for work to Orland, Disney World specifically. I was there so much I had an annual pass to the parks. I love Disney - even my scrap room/office is decorated with my mementos from Disney.
I stayed a couple times at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you have not stayed there, it is worth at least a trip over just to see it. It is very calming and different than anything else at Disney and have some awesome restaurants. 

One of them serves a Corn and Avocado Salad that is really good as a chip dip. I loved it so much I took a risk and asked for the recipe and they gave it to me!!!

So here it is. It makes a huge batch as you can imagine, but I just cut it down to make a manageable amount.
 
 If you want to try the recipe and cannot read it from this post, just drop me a note and I will be glad to email it to you.

Here's how I did it.....
Background 8x8 paper from American Tradtional Designs: Recipe Time
all other papers are from my scrap stash
Bamboo/layers cut at  7.5" from Life's a Beach
Leaves cut at 1.55" and 1.75" from Life's a Beach- some I flipped to go the other direction
Mickey head cut from Mickey Font
Animals all cut from New Arrival cartridge
  • Elephant/layers-2.31"

  • Monkey/layers-2.2"
