Fresh corn is a staple at every summer cookout, but cooking it fresh can leave you sweating over a hot stove while your guests kick back outside. This make-ahead salad of sweet, crisp corn scraped off the cob, mild scallions, and fresh basil in a tart white wine vinaigrette is a great alternative. Not only is it delicious and easy to make, it's a refreshing change from the usual (and messy) corn on the cob slathered with butter.
