Avocado Tomato Corn Salad

I love fresh salads in the summer!  They are refreshing and healthy!  This salad is full of bright colors and flavors.  It goes well with anything, but I served it with some southwestern style grilled chicken and some refried black beans.

Ingredients:
-1 Avocado, diced
-1 Ear of Corn, husked and cleaned
-1/2 of a Cucumber, peeled and sliced
-2 Ripe Tomatoes, diced
-2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
-1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
-Salt and Pepper

Stand the ear of corn up and using a sharp knife, slice the kernels off and into a bowl.  Add the diced avocado, cucumber, and tomato.  Squeeze a fresh lime over the top of the vegetables in the bowl.  Drizzle some olive oil over the top.  Add salt and pepper if desired.  Stir together with a serving spoon and serve immediately.

    It looks delicious! Unfortunately it is way to cold in Cape Town for a salad tonight!
