Avocado Bacon Pasta Salad

Some pasta salads are served as a side dish while others are served as a meal. I am a big fan of pasta salads because the possibilities are endless.

Yesterday I made some Avocado Bacon Pasta that I will be making again soon.

I used some Fusilli pasta that I found at the store but you can use Rotini or Bowtie to make this same dish. What I love about this pasta salad is that I make a creamy avocado dressing to go along with it.

This pasta salad has diced avocado, diced cherry tomatoes, olives and BACON! The flavor combo is delicious.
