- 2 cups fresh corn kernels
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

- In a medium bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients (corn through cilantro) and mix well. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator at least one hour before using.
- Meanwhile, prepare cucumbers: Peel (if not using English seedless) and cut in half lengthwise. With a small pointed teaspoon, scrape out and discard seeds.
- About 15 minutes before serving, remove corn bean saladita from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Dice avocados and stir them in gently. Add pepper to taste.
- Fill each cucumber half with about 1/3 cup saladita. Garnish with feta and serve cold or at room temperature.
