Ingredients

3 ears fresh corn

1/2 cup torn basil leaves

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 

1/2 cup minced red onion 

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar

1 medium cantaloupe, chopped (about 4 cups) 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the ears of corn, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook for 4 minutes. Remove the corn from the water and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut the corn kernels off the cobs and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the corn kernels with the basil, feta, onion, olive oil, vinegar, cantaloupe, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss to combine, taste to check the seasoning and serve immediately.
