3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons good olive oil

  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the corn for 3 minutes until the starchiness is just gone.
  • Drain and immerse it in ice water to stop the cooking and to set the color.
  • When the corn is cool, cut the kernels off the cob, cutting close to the cob.
  • Toss the kernels in a large bowl with the red onions, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Just before serving, toss in the fresh basil. Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
