BLT Bow Tie Pasta Salad Recipe

"The salad was great, but will use a different dressing next time. I think Caesar dressing would be good along with some shaved parmesan."

"I made this for a light supper for my sister and niece. They gave it a thumbs down. I may make it again, adding more bacon, and tweaking the dressing by leaving out the water which renders it tasteless, and adding herbs, maybe Ranch mix to give more flavor."

"Subbed black olives and peas for the tomatoes, Caesar for the mayo. Yum yum! Very easy. I also only coated the meat, veg and pasta in the dressing to keep the lettuce fresh plus easier for leftovers."

"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."

"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."
