BLT Pasta Salad

I’m so excited to share this salad with you guys today! This BLT Pasta Salad is generally classified as a summer salad, but I’m not going to lie, I eat it all year long! The bacon, lettuce, tomato mixed in with the bowtie noodles and lettuce topped with the amazing creamy ranch dressing is pure perfection!

This salad is a newer salad to me. My friend brought it to a BBQ last year and I literally skipped over my hamburger and just ate like 3 bowls of this! And I’ve made it at least a half dozen times since! 

I love that I can prep everything ahead of time and then just assemble it together when you’re ready to serve it. However, you can assemble 4-5 hours before if needed. I just prefer to put the toppings in ziplock bags and assemble right before serving.

After you’ve combined the lettuce, cooled bowtie pasta and toppings, it’s time to prepare the dressing.

The dressing is amazing! You basically just add some mayo, sour cream and garlic powder and it takes a basic ranch to the next level!
