Easy Bacon Avocado Summer Pasta Salad




Lately, we have been on a barbeque kick at our house. The minute the temperatures started to rise, our barbeque got fired up and we began cooking the tastiest summer meals. Once we started up our grill, hot dogs, hamburgers and ribs started to pile on it. We have loved the amazing flavors that a grill brings, and have enjoyed cooking outside for a change of scenery.

This easy bacon avocado summer pasta salad is the best thing to have with grilled food. If you are barbecuing soon, this simple pasta salad is the perfect compliment to grilled meats. We paired this salad with a juicy burger and were so happy with the fantastic outcome. Best of all, it was completely fresh tasting, making this salad feel light and summery. With most of the ingredients simply needing to be chopped and not cooked, it was so effortless to throw this salad together in no time. We loved that once the bacon was crisped and the noodles were boiled, the other fresh flavors were quickly placed on top. With an easy and zesty dressing, this pasta salad came together so wonderfully.
