Avocado Cucumber and Corn Salad with Strawberry Dressing

The triple combo of avocado, cucumber and corn with strawberry dressing!

Cubed cucumber!

Cubed avocado and the sweet corn kernel!

Triple Treat Salad

The Strawberry dressing...

My store-bought dressing...a Gourmet Dressing by Quan, a local bakeshop and restaurant. Manufactured by Pueblo Bakeshop, La Salle Avenue, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. 034-434-1733 Fax 034-434-6481

The ingredient says it's made of vinegar, strawberries, corn oil, sugar and spices.

avocado a.k.a alligator pear. It was green when not yet ripe and the peelings turned purple when they ripened. Choose a ripe avocado with firm flesh for this recipe.

3 medium-sized avocado, seed removed and cubed (flesh should be firm but ripe)
3 medium-sized cucumber, seeded and cubed 
1 can corn kernel, drained strawberry dressing

In a bowl, put the first three ingredients. Drizzle with half-cup strawberry dressing.
The strawberry dressing I used is store-bought but a home version can be made from strawberry jam, vinegar, corn oil, salt and pepper. The fruity taste of the dressing complements the avocado-cucumber and corn salad
Serve chilled, either as appetizer or side dish.
