BLT Pasta Salad

Mmmmhmmm!  Pasta And Bacon?  Yep!!   I thought I would just sneak in one more nice refreshing salad before the season changes from Summer into Fall.  And, this recipe sounded like a winner.  The recipe called for Apple Cider Vinegar.  At first I was skeptical, but it seems to be perfect for this salad.  Anyway, Enjoy !!!!

BLT Pasta Salad

2 cups uncooked Farfalle Pasta ( AKA Bowtie Pasta)

1 & 1/2 cups Tomatoes, chopped

4 Cups chopped or torn Romaine Lettuce

4 or more slices of bacon, cooked to crispy and chopped.  (And yeah right…. just 4 slices???   I ended up using half a pound and it was soooo worth it !!)

1/2 cup Red Onion, chopped

Dressing part:   1/4 cup EACH of Ranch Dressing, Sour Cream and Mayonnaise

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

HOW TO:

Cook pasta as directed on the box.  Drain, and cool immediately with cold water.  set aside… and let it keep draining in your drainer thingy.

get a large bowl and put the onion, tomato and lettuce.  Add cooked pasta.  Toss and toss some more.   ( I kept the bacon out of the salad until we were ready to eat.  I didnt want it to get soggy)

For the dressing:  Get a small bowl, combine and toss over the salad.

Chill till serving time.
