Bacon & Green Onion Pasta Salad

By Erren's Kitchen


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

Ingredients:
  • 12 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 cup pasta of your choice, cooked, rinsed, and drained

  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
