This pasta salad is really amazing! The bacon & green onions add a different spin on your every day macaroni salad. It's one of my favorite meals in the summertime because you can eat however much you like and it's a very fresh and light meal to eat in the hot weather when you don't feel like cooking or heating up the kitchen. It also keeps for a good few days so it's great for leftovers as well.
Serving Size: 4 Prep Time: 10 mins Total Time: 20 mins
12 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cup pasta of your choice, cooked, rinsed, and drained
3 green/spring onions, sliced into rounds
½ cup chopped cucumber

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
½ cup mayonnaise, plus more to taste
½ tsp salt, plus more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
In a large bowl combine the bacon, pasta, cucumber and green onions. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt & pepper.
