Whisk together the vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a non-reactive bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make smooth vinaigrette. Add in the shallots and set aside. Alternatively, you can make this by putting all ingredients in a blender.
Cut the corn kernels off the cobs and add to the vinaigrette. Toss with the tomatoes. Can be made up to 4 hours in advance and refrigerated covered. Just before serving, cut the basil and fold it into the salad. Serve immediately.
