Your favorite sandwich, the BLT, is here in pasta salad form. Bacon, lettuce, and tomato are tossed in a creamy ranch dressing with rotini pasta to make this flavorful BLT Pasta Salad. Perfect for your next picnic or barbecue.
In a large bowl, add cooked and cooled rotini pasta, crumbled bacon pieces, cherry tomatoes, onion, and romaine lettuce. Toss to combine and set aside.
In a small bowl, add mayonnaise and buttermilk. Add ranch seasoning and whisk until smooth.
Pour dressing over pasta and stir until evenly coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Salad is best enjoyed the same day.
*If desired, you can substitute the mayonnaise, buttermilk, and ranch seasoning with your favorite bottled ranch dressing instead.This pasta salad is best served the same day as preparing. If making beforehand, I suggest storing your pasta mixture and dressing separately. Toss your salad in the dressing before serving. The lettuce will wilt and bacon will lose its crispiness if it is dressed and refrigerated overnight.
