Chicken BLT Pasta Salad

Why does the combination of bacon, lettuce and tomato work so well together? I decided to push my tastebuds to the limit and add a little something extra… chicken, pasta and a green leafy mixture. Which created my new favorite lunch and/or side dish: Chicken BLT Pasta Salad.

Looking for other light recipes? One of my favorites to bring to barbecues is our 7-Layer Green Salad. Fast, easy, delicious, and feeds a crowd!

This is the perfect light spring or summer salad to bring to barbecues, or to eat for a light lunch. The ingredients are so fresh and taste amazing together! I like to use the cherry tomatoes because I love the way they look in this salad, but any type of tomato works!

You can use any type of noodle to make this pasta. We personally love bow tie because it’s easier for the little ones. Another one of our favorite pasta dishes is our Spaghetti Salad recipe.
