How do you join two fields with dedup?

Path Finder

Hello folks,

Trying to figure out how to go about joining 2 fields with a dash but only if they don't have the same values. Ideally, if there's a way to dynamically add the - only if 2 strings, that would cool!

string1 string2 string3
string10 string20 string20
string11 string100 string100

index=xyz sourcetype=zzz |table field1 field2 field3
    |eval joined = field2 + " - " + field3
|table field1 joined

Results desired for joined field

    string1 string2 - string3
    string10 string20
    string11 string100
