Whisk together oil, crème fraîche, vinegar, sugar (if using), 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Coarsely chop tomatoes and toss with shallot and dressing. Marinate until ready to use, at least 10 minutes.

Separately saute scallops until fully cooked.

While tomatoes stand, cook fusilli in a pasta pot of well-salted boiling water until al dente. Drain in a colander and immediately add to tomato mixture and scallops, tossing to combine. Cool to warm or room temperature (do not chill), tossing occasionally, then stir in herbs.

Makes 10 servings.
