Pasta Salad

Okay, I cannot tell enough how much I love pasta salad. If there was only one style of food I got to enjoy| every day for the rest of my entire life I would not be mad at all if pasta salad would be it. Whenever I go to a restaurant with a buffet in it, I actually will always get pasta salad it doses not matter what kind it is as if they offer it I well eat it. But my favorite of all pasta salad is chicken, bacon, and Ranch pasta salad.

I really do not think I know anyone that does not like a good bacon ranch pasta salad. After all, what is there not to like it is bacon and ranch. This recipe is the way in which my family and I personally enjoy this pasta salad, but like almost all of my recipes, there is also a lot of room to try out new things with the recipe and alter it to your taste.
