BLT Pasta Salad by Julie from Julie's Food Love
My dear friends, Andrea and Bill, have a huge garden every year. Last year they planted 47 tomato plants. They are generous with their tomatoes. Andrea also shared this recipe with me. It's a great way to use up some of those delicious fresh tomatoes.
This recipe makes a lot. I double it for family events but I have a HUGE family. So unless you have a HUGE family (and a HUGE bowl), I'd stick with the original recipe.
BLT Pasta Salad
1 package (16 oz) wagon wheel pasta

3 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1/2 tsp. salt

Cook pasta according to package directions, al dente is best. Rinse under cold water and set aside to drain. In a large bowl combine pasta, bacon, tomatoes and lettuce.
In a separate small bowl, mix dressing ingredients until smooth.
