here at home. What kind of salad can I make with this. . . lettuce or no lettuce? Dressing suggestions?
The name of the game is quick n easy, since I have very little time to prepare food these days.

I've heard of some using pretty much what you have and maybe seasoning a little with salt and/or lime juice...the avocado is mashed up for kinda like your "dressing".
You could also chop up the peppers and tomatoes, put in a bowl with some lettuce, add the corn and mash up the avo or blend it into a creamy dressing with seasonings of your choice if any.
Could probably also make a nice guac/salsa in the food processor too.

Haha... when I say your title I thought "mmmm... my favorite combo for a salad!"
I would just cut the corn off the cob
chop the pepper
cut the avo
cut the tomatos
and use a olive oil/lemon/basil dressing
Oh YUM! I love this combo!

Oh yeah - throw in some cilantro if you have some!

:D One night i took a cob of yellow and white corn and cut the kernals off and scraped the cob, by it's self it was sweet and creamy, mixed with avocado and diced juicy tomatoes it was so good.
I was very satisfied after eating it. :D

Or you could make a tasty butter from the avo and the pepper and have your corn on the cob.

That tastes great. I don't miss boiled corn at all.
Corn Salad with Cilantro Dressing
4 fresh Corn Cobs, stripped
1 diced Red Bell Pepper
1 Avocado, cubed
1 minced Garlic
1 small Onion
½ Jalapeno Pepper
1 small bunch Cilantro
1 Lime, juiced
½ tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
2 tsp Flax or Olive Oil
½ tsp Cumin Powder
In a medium bowl, combine the corn, red bell pepper & avocado. Set aside. In a blender, Vita-Mix or food processor, combine the dressing ingredients. Pulse until the cilantro is finely chopped. Mix the dressing with the salad. Enjoy!

I might make a guacamole out of everything but the bell pepper and stuff the bell pepper and drizzle lemon, oil, garlic over it. Maybe top with a macadamia nut parmesan.

Got two ears of corn in my organic produce box yesterday. I was making a salad for myself and I scraped the kernels off one ear onto my salad. I then asked my daughter if she wanted the other one either scraped off or on the cob. "On", she replied. My husband then asked for one. I told him there were only two and I wasn't cooking it. He stuck his nose up in the air. He won't eat raw corn. Daughter brought me back the cob, face and hair all dripping with corn juice before I'd finished making the rest of her meal. Heh!
When we went to the fair last week she got a cob of that roasted corn. Kept remarking on how raw corn was sooooo much better. I took one kernel off her cob and tasted it. Yuck! Raw IS soooo much better! I didn't even used to like corn until I tried it raw! :D

I'd take all those ingredients (adding some cayenne and cilantro) and just mix it all up (and hope the combination won't be one I'd regret later) and put it in a romaine lettuce leaves for tacos. When I saw those ingredients you had listed it made me so hungry :)

Mmm, I miss my raw food that I made at home!!! I've been in the mood for mexican/tex-mex style foods! I'll have to go to the store today!! Mmm. Okay, well I would just throw it all in a salad and I actually make "sour cream" by blending up one avo and like juice of one or two lemons, to taste. So that might be good!!

I would use the corn, avo, tomato for a quacamole, and use the pepper to dip it up! I use sea salt, cumin and chili pepper (maybe alittle Bragg's) in my guacamole! YUM...you've got my belly growling!
