Coarsely ground pepper, to taste
4 ears fresh corn
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup cucumber, seeded (not peeled)
1/2 cup orange pepper, chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3 tablespoons parsley, torn
1 tablespoon basil, torn
2 cups fresh arugula
Prepare dressing and set aside:
In a glass bowl, whisk together vinegar, sugar, salt & pepper.
For salad:
Blanch corn and immediately place in ice water.  Drain thoroughly and slice from cob. Toss together in a large bowl, the corn and remaining ingredients (except arugula).
