  1. Fill a bowl with ice water. Stir sugar into a large pot filled with water; bring to a boil. Add corn; cook until kernels are softened, about 2 minutes. Drain and transfer corn to ice water until cooled; drain. Cut kernels from the cob with a sharp knife.
  2. Combine corn, Roma tomatoes, red bell pepper, and green onions in a bowl. Stir sour cream, mayonnaise, basil, Parmesan cheese, and cider vinegar together in a bowl until dressing is smooth; season with salt and pepper. Fold dressing into corn mixture. Chill in the refrigerator until flavors combine, 8 hours to overnight.

  • A 16-ounce package of frozen corn can be substituted for fresh corn.
