BLT Pasta Salad

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

NOTE: If there was any doubt, I am a moron. On the next two posts, there are no pictures of the completed salads. I had to wait until the last minute to finish them before the party, and completely forgot to take pictures. I am a work in progress!

On to the recipe!

Two of my favorite summer meals are cold salads and a BLT sandwich. So I knew when I found this recipe I had to try it. It goes together in minutes, and was a hit at our 4th of July BBQ.


1 (7-8 oz) package of rotini pasta noodles (cooked and drained)
8 slices bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
1 cup mayonnaise
Juice of one lemon
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons chicken flavored instant bouillon (2 cubes, crushed)
2 large or 4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
4 cups lettuce, thinly sliced


In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, chicken bouillon and sugar. Mix well until smooth.

In a serving bowl, add noodles, bacon, tomato, and green onions, toss with dressing. Stir in lettuce right before serving.

This was delicious. And super fast to prepare. It's a keeper! Try it for your next potluck, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Bon Appetite!
