Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad is the perfect side for all your summer meals! Creamy, easy to prepare and always a hit, you'll love this dish!

Summer and pasta salad just go hand in hand at my house, maybe they do at your house too. Pasta salad is quick, economical and delicious! Not to mention versatile, there’s a million varieties but today I’m sharing with you my favorite mayonnaise based pasta salad. Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad is a dish I’ve been preparing for so many years. Normally I prepare this salad using rotini shaped pasta, but you can use pretty much any shape you desire. There’s nothing complicated about this dish either, that’s the beauty of it. Most ingredients you’ll probably have in your pantry or refrigerator and you just make, refrigerate and enjoy.
