  1. Step 1

    First, husk the corn and remove the silk. In a large pot of boiling sugared water, cook corn for 1-2 minutes. Really, this short amount of time is perfect as you just want to heat the kernels. Place the corn in a bowl of ice water and let stand 3-4 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Cut the corn off the cob using a sharp knife. I like to stand the cobs on end in the center of a bundt pan. The kernels will fall into the pan and make less of a mess.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the corn kernels in a large bowl with the green pepper, onions, and tomatoes.
  4. Step 4

    In a small bowl combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, basil, garlic vinegar, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper and then stir to combine.
  5. Step 5

    Pour this dressing over the corn mixture and toss gently to coat. Chill for 1-2 hours before serving.
