BLT Pasta Salad

"I make this easy salad for lots of potlucks and always come home with an empty dish," writes Ellie Marsh from Lewistown, Pennsylvania. Crisp bacon, chopped tomato and fresh greens give a packaged pasta salad mix terrific flavor.

    This is so easy to prepare and very tasty. I added some chopped green onions as I had some which needed to be used. I took this to a potluck and returned with an empty bowl.

    What an easy and delicious side dish, or you can use as a main dish! Made this as I had everything on hand and it was a big hit! Will be making this again and great for potlucks too!

    I prepared this salad tonight and we loved it. I used the Ranch and Bacon flavor of Suddenly Salad and added a sliced green onion and one celery stalk, chopped. . It had a nice fresh taste and not an artificial taste that so often accompanies these mixes. I will definitely prepare this recipe again. Both hubby and I cleaned our plates.Volunteer Field Editor

    This was good and easy to prepare. But I did have a hard time finding the creamy parmesan mix. I used the Caeasar mix instead and prepared it using the "creamy" directions on the back of the box.
