Creamy homemade ranch dressing coats every bite of pasta and vegetables in this Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad. Sprinkled throughout with bacon bits and cheddar cheese, my kids absolutely went nuts over this salad. My boys would happily choose tacos, enchiladas, or even sandwiches, over a pasta salad most of the time. So, you can imagine my surprise when they dove into this Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad for second helpings and the three of them ate almost the entire recipe in one sitting!
I’ve already promised my kids that I’d make this salad again very soon. I’m hoping to get more than a few bites for myself next time! This is a great salad to make for a potluck or summer party. I suspect that I’ll be making it all year long. I love having easy recipes like this one at my fingertips for nights when it’s too hot to even think about being in the kitchen. A few minutes spent in the kitchen after breakfast and you’ll have dinner ready whenever you are hungry for it.
