Creamy California BLT Salad

BLT’s are one of my favorite sandwiches, I just love the creamy freshness of it.  I also love avocado so what could be better than adding a little California in it!  Instead of a sandwich this is a great salad that merges these flavors together.  I have to admit this is my spin-off  of the recipe on the back of the suddenly salad box (sometimes I’m just too tired).  I did try theirs but the mix is strange tasting to me and really all you need is ranch and a few fresh ingredients.  If you want to kick it up add a little hot sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 box of pasta
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 8-10 slices of bacon (your preference)
  • 1 bag of mixed lettuce (12 oz.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the dressing:

  • One pack of Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
  • One Cup Mayo
  • One Cup Milk

Refrigerate the dressing for 30 minutes to thicken before tossing it with the other ingredients.

For a lighter and healthier version all you need it to just the Greek yogurt ranch recipe, turkey bacon and wheat pasta.  Trust me you can hardly tell the difference.
