This dress is truly inventive. I hope I am just as thoughtful when it comes to my dress and wedding theme.

Creamy Bacon, Tomato, and Avocado Pasta Salad

After seeing this recipe on a blog, I fell in love with it. I love pasta salads, and I will definitely be adding this one to my recipe box.

Serves 4

You will need:

  • 6 slices bacon, chopped into one inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound dried rotini pasta
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado pitted and sliced
  1. Cook bacon until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Strain. Run cold water over the top until the pasta is cooled.
  3. While your bacon and pasta are cooking, whisk mayonnaise, lemon, salt, garlic powder, pepper and dill together in a bowl.
  4. Stir cooled pasta, cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado and reserved bacon into the dressing. Toss to combine. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Serve.
