BLT Pasta Salad

SERVES: 8-10 PREP: 20 minutes TOTAL TIME: 45 minutes

Our favorite sandwich, in salad form!

Who doesn't love a classic BLT? We love it so much that we decided to turn it into another favorite summer meal: pasta salad! Basically, we're swapping out the bread for pasta, (which is a trade we can certainly get down with). It all starts by making a garlic confit (don't worry, it's easy) as the base of the dressing, which gets blended up with vinegar, dijon mustard, honey, and of course, mayo (because BLT). Then, crumbled strips of crispy bacon along with cooked bowtie pasta, cherry tomatoes, and arugula get tossed with the super-flavorful dressing to result in this ultimate picnic-friendly summer dish.

  • 30 cloves garlic

  • 1 cup olive oil

  • 8 slices bacon

  • Half of a one-pound box bowtie pasta

  • 4 cups baby arugula

  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

For the dressing: 

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon mayo

  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

  • 1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
