  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Clean ears of corn and place on a baking sheet, then roast until the corn starts to char, about 25 minutes. Let cool, then cut off corn kernels and set aside.
  3. Add lardons to a medium skillet over medium-high heat and cook until crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, then add the red onion and cook in the bacon fat. Sprinkle with salt, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the corn and season again. Turn off heat, add the basil and season again if necessary.
  4. Mix together the vinegar, oil and a pinch of salt. Toss with the corn.
