The flavors you love in a BLT sandwich, served up in a pasta salad!
If you are a big fan of a good BLT, you have to try this pasta salad! When I first tried this salad, I was in BLT heaven. Let’s be honest the best part of a BLT is the “B”, followed by a juicy garden fresh “T” and lastly the “L”. Technically there is no L (lettuce) in this pasta salad, instead, there is an A…A for avocado. Even better, don’t you think?! We just substitute one green for another. Although I use “BLT” in the recipe title, because it’s the best way to describe how this salad tastes.
BLT Avocado Pasta Salad
BLT Avocado Pasta Salad loaded with the flavors you know and love of a good BLT sandwich, plus avocado.
For the Salad:
- 1 pound bag rotini pasta cooked al dente
- 1 package bacon cooked and crumbled
- 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half
- 2 avocados sliced and diced
For the Dressing:
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 lemon juiced
- 2 teaspoons dried dill weed
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Make the dressing - combine all ingredients and pour over the cooked, drained and warm al dente rotini pasta.
Toss the pasta in the dressing and store in the fridge over night.
Cook and crumble the bacon.
Right before serving (the next day), add the crumbled bacon, diced avocado and tomato halves to the pasta and toss all together.
If possible avoid chilling the whole salad with the tomatoes in the fridge, the fridge will kill the flavor of the tomatoes.
