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 rotini, crumbled bacon, cherry tomatoes, onion, and romaine lettuce. Set aside.
In a small bowl, add mayonnaise, lemon juice, and ranch seasoning. Whisk until smooth.
Pour dressing over pasta salad and toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Salad is best served within a few hours of preparing.
Best served same day. If making beforehand, store your pasta, tomato, onion, and lettuce in one container, bacon in a second container, and dressing in a third container. Toss your ingredients together just before serving. The lettuce will wilt and bacon will lose its crispiness if dressed and refrigerated overnight.
Ranch seasoning can be homemade or store bought. 2 tablespoons = one 1-ounce packet of store bought ranch seasoning.
