BLT Bow Tie Pasta Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
I first had this summery salad at a family reunion, and it's become one of my husband's favorite dinners. Sometimes, we leave out the chicken and serve it as a side dish instead. —Jennifer Madsen, Rexburg, ID

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 20, 2014

This is very good for a hot summer's supper on the deck! Be sure the pasta is drained well so it doesn't make the dressing runny.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2014

My husband and I loved this without the chicken. We will add more bacon for the true BLT taste.

MY REVIEW

This was really easy to make, and quite good. You could easily use the precooked bacon and save a little time. I cooked my own, but next time I'll use precooked. The dressing is not overpowering nor is the salad swimming in it. It provides a nice coating of flavor.

This was very good! Used cherry tomatoes cut in half. Had to substitute red wine vinegar because all I had, and it worked fine!!
