Black Bean/Corn/Cilantro Dip and Turkey Bacon Focaccia Sandwiches

I know everyone has a recipe for some kind of black bean corn dip. This one is different because it has feta cheese in it. If you like the normal dip, you will love this one. I think it is better.
Black Bean Dip
2 cups corn
1 can of black beans, rinsed
2 Roma tomatoes
bunch of green onions, chopped
handful of chopped cilantro
1 avocado, diced
4 ounces of feta
1/3 cup olive oil
zest and juice of one lime
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a medium sized bowl, mix the oil, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice and zest. Add in the rest of the ingredients (except the avocado) and toss. Let it marinate in the refrigerator. When you get ready to serve it toss in the avocado. Serve with tortilla chips.

Next I was missing Free State Brewery this week and decided to try to recreate my favorite sandwich from there. I think it turned out pretty good.
Turkey Bacon Focaccia Sandwich
1 Focaccia bread
1 pkg pepper bacon
shaved turkey
1 avocado, sliced
6 slices white cheddar cheese
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 t. dried chives
1/2 t. minced garlic
Cook the bacon. Mix the mayo, chives and garlic in a small bowl. Slice the focaccia in half and then quarter or sixths, depending on how big it is. Spread the chive mayo on the bread. Then layer the rest of the toppings on the sandwich.
