Ranch BLT Pasta Salad. YUM. A BLT sandwich is one of my favorite foods, and ranch pretty much goes with everything. So this is perfection. Here’s how to make it!
8 ounces radiatore pasta (or another type of medium-sized pasta)
1 bottle Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing
1 + 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, seeds removed
1 cup cubed Swiss cheese
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 pound bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
2 cups finely chopped romaine or iceberg lettuce
coarse salt and fresh black pepper
- Cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente in plenty of salted water.
- Drain pasta, toss with dressing to lightly coat so they don’t stick together and refrigerate until cold.
- In a large bowl toss the cold pasta with the tomatoes, Swiss, onions, bacon and lettuce.
- Add enough dressing to generously coat everything and season to taste with salt and pepper.
