Ingredients

  • 8 oz medium sized shell pasta
  • 8 slices bacon cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 2 cups cooked chopped chicken breast or even pre-made rotisserie
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup grape tomatoes tomato halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese cubed
  • 1/2 avocado diced (optional)
  • Ranch Dressing
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients for the dressing into a blender. Blend until evenly incorporated and frothy. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions- just to al dente. While straining the pasta run it under cold water to stop it cooking.
  • Transfer the cooled and strained pasta into a large salad bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients, except for the dressing, and gently toss them to evenly distribute. Stir in the dressing a 1/4 cup at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve immediately or let the pasta salad chill until ready to serve.
