BLT Pasta Salad

July 12th 2021

Everyone loves a BLT. Now you can try it in pasta salad form! Whitney is showing us how to make BLT Pasta Salad using ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Not a fan of mayonnaise? No worries! Replace mayonnaise with greek yogurt or ranch dressing without losing any of the creamy texture.

You can serve this dish immediately, but for best results let it set in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld together.

Keep these ingredients on hand - you’ll want to make this for every pot luck, cook out and barbecue!
