In a medium bowl, mix vinegar, hot sauce, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Peel and cut avocado into ½" cubes-add to vinegar mixture. Mix gently to coat (the vinegar's acid will keep avocado from turning brown). Set aside. Drain and rinse peas and corn. Add peas, corn, onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and peppers to vinegar mixture. Mix gently to coat. Correct seasoning to taste by adding extra hot sauce for a bit more kick. Best made 1-2 hours ahead to mingle flavors. Dip will keep for 2 days in refrigerator.
