  • 3/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large red bell pepper, cored and seeded
  • 4 poblano chiles, roasted, peeled and seeded
  • 4 green onions, light green and white parts, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

Step 1Heat one-half cup of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the corn, salt and pepper, and saute until the corn is heated through and tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
