BLT Pasta Salad

2 cups prepared and chilled pasta (shell macaroni or bowtie looks best)
3/4 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (save out a bit for garnish)
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 medium firm tomatoes, chopped
1 1/2 – 2 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped**
1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise*
1 cup bleu cheese dressing*

  • Whisk the mayonnaise and bleu cheese together.
  • Pour over the prepared ingredients.
  • Toss all together in a large bowl.
  • Garnish top with bacon.
  • Chill for several hours prior to serving.

*If you’re in a hurry, you can substitute 1 1/2 cups Buttermilk Ranch dressing.

**If you plan to have leftovers, toss with lettuce just prior to serving each time.
