I usually like a vinaigrette dressing on pasta salad. For me, the key is to sprinkle red wine vinegar on the pasta while it's still hot, so it absorbs the flavor. Then I add olive oil and whatever herbs I have around (usually fresh, especially in the summer, since I grow several, sometimes a combination of fresh and dried). Salt and pepper to taste.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
