Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad Recipe

Things that I love, in no particular order:

Bacon.

Ranch.

Pasta.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m ALL ABOUT the pasta salads. It’s my go-to summer side dish. Mostly because I always over cook potatoes for potato salad and who likes mushy potato salad?

Well, my 3 year old. But that’s beside the point.

Anyway, because I’m making pasta salad every weekend this time of year, I’m always trying to come up with a new version or new stuff to put in it. This one was a definite winner over this past weekend. It’s got bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, and black olives. So all my faves! And then it’s tossed with my favorite ranch dressing by Newman’s Own.

You guys know I love Newman’s Own products and you probably also know that I’m obsessed with the salad dressings. I am in a full-on relationship with the Lite Honey Mustard – I can’t remember the last time I had a salad without it. Husband and I also love the Balsamic, Olive Oil and Vinegar, Family Recipe Italian, and Creamy Caesar. Plus, Newman’s Own has a bunch more that I haven’t even tried yet.

This post is about the Ranch though! I’m pretty particular about ranch (as everyone should be) and Newman’s Own definitely makes my favorite. It’s great tasting, high quality, and made from the finest ingredients.

Plus, you can feel good about buying Newman’s Own because all profits go to charity. For more information, check out the Newman’s Own Facebook page or the Newman’s Own BuzzFeed Page.

And next time you pick up a bottle of Newman’s Own Ranch dressing, you should definitely try this recipe. It’s perfect for a party, potluck, barbecue, anything!
