BLT Pasta Salad

I have had this recipe in my folder of “Recipe’s To Eventually Try” for some time now. And that time has finally come. Huge and I mean huge hit with the family. It really tastes like a BLT and is so easy to throw together. It’s even filling enough to eat as the main course for a meal.

BLT Pasta Salad

  • 1/2 pound fusilli pasta
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk or milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, preferably heirloom, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 4 lightly packed cups sliced romaine or other crispy lettuce

Cook fusilli according to package directions until just tender; drain, cool under cold running water and drain again.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, buttermilk, mustard, garlic and salt. Add pasta and toss until coated. Add bacon, tomatoes, onion and lettuce and toss again.


Serve immediately.

This recipe was found on the Whole Foods website.
I did make a few adjustments to ours by using bacon pieces,organic fat free milk and only using half the garlic called for.
It is delicious, give it a try.
