  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Lettuce leaves, for serving

Step 2Drain the corn, then slice the kernels from the cobs: Place each cob, stem end down, on the counter and, with a sharp knife, cut down on the cob. You'll have about 4 cups of corn.

Step 3Combine the corn, tomatoes, green onions, celery and basil in a large bowl. Add the vinegar and salt. Stir to evenly mix the ingredients.

Step 4Spoon into a lettuce-lined bowl and serve.
