Cooking Thursday

I made this salad last week and it was a hit! It's a pasta salad, but it also has lettuce in it.
Stop over at Diary of a SAHM for more recipes.



BLT Salad

12 ounces bow tie pasta
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
12 ounces cooked bacon
3 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper
5 - 6 ounces salad mix (I used Spring Mix)

Cook pasta as directed on package and drain.
Mix milk, mayo and sour cream. Stir in thyme and garlic powder. Add tomatoes and bacon, saving 1/4 cup of bacon for garnish. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
Stir in pasta and lettuce. Garnish with remaining bacon.

I make the same salad and it's fantastic....first time I made it my kids were a little weirded out that it had lettuce in it too, but boy did they love it :)

Sandra said...

Forgot to say, the difference in mine is that I use a bottle of ranch seasoning instead of the mayo, milk and sour cream :)

Hey Mari, I think you need to re-follow me in your reader. I made a change that may have affected that! Thanks for laughing out loud at Javier's licking my toast! I wish you could have seen his face. He knew exactly what he'd done. He calculated risk versus reward and figured it would be easier to obtain forgiveness than permission! He was right because I can't stay mad at him for long.

It's becomming dangerous for me to stop by on cooking day. I make your bread, scones, and lots of other things, LOL!
This looks like another dish right up my ally!
