BLT Pasta Salad Recipe


Two of my favorite summer treats are cold salads and a nice BLT sandwich. If you also enjoy these foods, you will love this dish. The dish is the ultimate combination of a BLT sandwich and a cold pasta salad. BLT pasta salad is rotini noodles with bacon, lettuce and tomato, tossed in a delicious sauce. The sauce is a combination of mayo, lemon juice, chicken flavored instant bouillon and sugar.  This salad is perfect for parties, picnics or other indoor and outdoor events. If possible, it is a good idea to add the lettuce just before serving so it is crispy. This recipe is very simple and can be prepared within a half hour. Enjoy.

Ingredients:
1 (7 ounce) package rotini pasta noodles (cooked and drained)
8 slices bacon (cooked until crispy and crumbled)
1 cup mayonnaise (or salad dressing)
¼ cup lemon juice concentrate
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons chicken flavored instant bouillon
1 large tomato (seeded and chopped)
¼ cup green onions (sliced)
4 cups lettuce (thinly sliced)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, chicken flavor instant bouillon, and sugar. Mix well until smooth.
Step 2: In a serving bowl add noodles, bacon, tomato, and green onions, Toss with dressing. Stir in lettuce right before serving.
(Makes 10 Servings)

    BLT other than between two slices of bread, I never thought it would be possible, what a great idea. Thanks for the out of the box idea.

    I made this as a BLT salad…without the pasta. It was very tasty. I plan to make it with the pasta in the summer. My husband likes it without the pasta so next time I will make toast triangles or croutons to go with it. That would cut the bite down and smooth out the flavor. Heck, I would eat this stuff between two pieces of toast! It’s good.

    Very easy and very yummy. I let dressing, bacon and
    pasta sit overnight in fridge and added other veggies
    just before serving. A big hit!
