This is a salad I always make in August and early September when the tomatoes and corn are the most amazing. The corn should be cooked first and cooled while you prepare the other ingredients. —sweet enough

cucumber, peeled and seeded, or not if you like them
ripe avocado, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
