Here’s one healthy food network recipe (Salad Recipes Food Network):
Corn and Pasta Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing
4 ounces gemelli pasta
1 small garlic clove
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 scallion, minced
2 small ears fresh corn
8 ounces grape tomatoes, preferably mixed heirloom, halved
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
4 cups baby arugula
2 slices bacon, cooked until crisp in the microwave, and crumbled
Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions; drain and run under cold water to cool.
Meanwhile, finely chop the garlic clove on a cutting board; sprinkle with salt. Using the blade of a chef’s knife, press down onto garlic, smashing it to make a paste. Add the garlic paste to a large bowl with the sour cream, buttermilk, cider vinegar and scallion; season with salt and pepper. Whisk the dressing until smooth and reserve.
Cut the kernels from the corn (breaking sheets of kernels into about 2-inch pieces, if desired). Add the corn, tomatoes, onion and arugula to bowl with dressing; gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with the bacon.
