  1. Place the corn in a large pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook until kernels are tender but crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain, and cool in cold water. Use a knife to scrape kernels from the cobs.
  2. Place kernels in a medium bowl. Stir in avocado, red onion, pepper and garlic. Add cumin, crushed chillies and oregano. Mix in vinegar, olive oil, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
