Corn Fritters and Yogurt Dip

Made this from a recipe in the newspaper this week and with a few creative edits they were amazing! So good, in fact, that this is a stock photo, we ate them too fast to take a pic. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Note: The hero of these fritters is of course fresh Ontario corn

  • 2 green onions, sliced
