Pasta Salad With Mayo

I love pasta salad with mayo. Sure an Italian pasta salad with Italian dressing os good, but a creamy pasta salad recipe just tastes better in my opinion.

So is mayo the secret to a creamy pasta salad recipe? Yes in a way. So if you do not like mayo then a pasta salad with mayo would not be for you. However, you can doctor the mayo that you would not be able to tell that the creamy pasta salad dressing really contained mayonnaise!

Creamy Pasta Salad Dressing

So how can you make a creamy pasta salad dressing and not tell that it has mayo in it? Simple, ranch dressing! A ranch pasta salad sounds so much better than pasta salad with mayo does it not?

Ranch Pasta Salad

I have seen where a ranch pasta salad uses a packet of dry ranch seasoning. I didn’t want this bacon pasta salad to be salty because of the bacon that is in this easy pasta salad. So I choose to add a bottle of ranch dressing instead.
