This bacon cheddar ranch pasta salad is the perfect summer salad to bring to a barbecue, or for a family get together. It’s hearty enough for a light lunch, or great to serve as a side with burgers, or hot dogs.

I’ve been on a summer salad kick lately, especially with the hot summer weather we have been having. Did you try the red, white and blue fruit salad I shared last week? It is so yummy!

My daughter and I both love ranch dressing, and I never made a pasta salad with ranch, so I figured I’d give it a try. Boy, am I glad I did.

This pasta salad is absolutely amazing!!
