I opted for the cherry tomatoes and fresh corn. I used a pint of cherry tomatoes and 2 corn cobs. I used fresh basil, but I wouldn't hesitate to use dried, especially if making in advance. This was pretty and tasty. And for a potluck when time is short, you couldn't ask for a more perfect offering!

Lacking fresh basil I substituted dried basil in excess of 8 leaves and let the mixture sit for a few hours to "hydrate" the basil. It was excellent. The sweet corn compliments the tang of the balsamic extremely well... Oh, and it's super-easy/quick to make.
