    1. To make the vinaigrette: Combine all vinaigrette ingredients except the oils in a food processor and process till the basil is finely minced. With the machine running, add in the oils in a stream.
    2. Preheat the grill (or possibly grill pan). Arrange the corn in one layer on a rack set 4 inches from the glowing coals (or possibly on a grillpan) and grill, turning 4 times, for 3 min on a side.
    3. Remove corn from grill and cold. Cut kernels from the cobs and mix with sufficient vinaigrette to cover generously. Stir in tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
    4. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
