i make something similar to this but use lime juice instead with a little honey. I also add avocado and sometimes black beans. I often skip the pasta and just have lots of veggies

Great recipe and really showcases summer foods. I substituted garlic and herb goat cheese for the ricotta salata. I can usually find the goat cheese at the local farmers market along with the corn, leeks and tomatoes. I will definitely make this again next week.
