Tempting Tuesdays ~ Creamy Avocado Pasta Salad

The summer of salads continues! This week just went I was thinking about making a kick-ass pasta salad, this recipe came into my inbox from I Wash... You Dry.


16 oz cooked large shell pasta
1 Avocado, diced
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
6 strips of thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 cup Ranch dressing (I used some Peppercorn Ranch to kick it up a knotch)
1 Avocado
Juice from 1 lime
2 tablespoons fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt

Prepare pasta according to package directions. Once drained, run cold water through to cool pasta down. Place in large bowl.

For dressing, place all dressing ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour over pasta and mix until completely coated.

Fold in grape tomatoes, diced Avocado, and bacon. Season with a little more salt and pepper if need be.

Serve with your favorite dish or maybe a burger and some loaded potato salad. Enjoy!
