Here's my very favorite. It's like summer in your mouth.

Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Corn

5 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons red wine vinegar (or 3 red wine, 2 balsamic)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil or more, to taste
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (cut from 3 ears) or frozen, thawed
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 1/4 pounds plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
8 ounces penne pasta, freshly cooked
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Whisk 4 tablespoons oil, vinegar, basil and garlic in large bowl to blend. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add corn and pine nuts; sauté 3 minutes. Add corn to dressing in bowl. Add tomatoes, pasta and cheese to bowl and toss to blend. Season salad with salt and pepper, serve at room temperature.

4 to 6 servings.
