Corn, Avocado and Radish Salad

Corn, Avocado and Radish Salad 

Ingredients for salad:

 1 ripe avocado, sliced

2 red radishes, sliced thinly

1/2 green pepper, sliced thinly

red onion, sliced thinly

fresh red currants (if you can find them) 


mixed lettuces, dressed lightly with your favorite salad dressing (I like to use extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, a little honey, a little Dijon mustard, plus salt and pepper.)


Creamy Dressing:

1/3 cup mayonaaise

1/2 cup sour cream

grated zest from 1 lime

juice from 1/2 lime

a sprig or two of fresh oregano leaves, minced

1/4 tsp. paprika

dash of cayenne pepper

salt, pepper

Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together in a jar.


Toss the lettuces with a light amount of the oil and vinegar dressing (the creamy dressing will add another layer, so you don't want to overdo it on the oil and vinegar dressing). Arrange the lettuces on a platter, then place the rest of the ingredients on top of the lettuce, in an "artful" way.

Drizzle dabs of the creamy dressing on top.
