Corn, avocado, and tomato salsa with lime-honey dressing

Corn, avocado, and tomato salsa with lime-honey dressing
Adapted from For the Love of Cooking

2 ears corn, husked with silk removed
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 avocado

2 T cilantro, minced
3 T olive oil
1.5 T lime juice
1 T honey
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

1. Put 2 inches of water into a steamer pan, cover with lid, and set on medium-high heat.
2. While waiting for steamer to boil, combine all ingredients for dressing into a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk, and set aside.
3. When steamer is ready, put corn in to steam for 10 minutes with lid on.
4. Dice avocado, place into dressing bowl, and coat immediately.
5. Half all of the tomatoes (quarter if particularly large), and place in the mixing bowl.
6. Once corn has finished cooking, set aside until cool enough to handle, and then cut corn of cob with sharp knife, rotating the husk as you go along. Be sure not to cut too close to the husk.
7. Combine corn with rest of mix, mix gently with hands (so to not squish the avocado more than it must be).
Optional: Let flavors combine for 30 mins. before serving.
