Recipe for Cooking ~ BLT Garden Salad

Spread the love

With the warm summer weather our garden is giving us produce to pick daily.  We are also looking for cool recipes to eat at the end of a hot summer day.  I made up this recipe  last week after making the fixing for BLT sandwiches only to realize my kids ate all the bread for lunch.  Thinking quick I tossed it with noodles instead and it turned out amazing.  We ate every last bite and all 4 kids were asking for more!

You will need

  • 3 cups lettuce chopped
  • 4 cups cooked pasta  that has been cooled in ice water( use what ever kind you have penne, bow tie, macaroni )
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber cubed or sliced
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup cooked bacon bits
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning (from a dip packet)
  • salt and pepper to taste

 Add the dry ranch seasoning to the mayonnaise and lime juice, mix well set aside.  Prep vegetables, noodles and bacon. Add all the ingredients into a large bowl and toss.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve cold! This recipe make 4 servings.
