  • 2 cups uncooked farfalle pasta
  • 4 cups chopped or torn Romaine lettuce
  • 1,5 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 4 slices bacon cooked to crispy, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion

!for the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar


  • Cook pasta according to instructions on the box. Drain, rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  • Place salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, stir together dressing ingredients. Pour over salad. Toss gently to coat.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve or serve right away.



Notes: 1) You can use any bite-size pasta you like. Rotini is a fantastic option! 2) Feel free to skip the onion, if you are not a fan. 3) For a mayo-free option, replace mayonnaise with more sour cream or Ranch dressing. Just make sure to make 3/4 cup of mixture. You can also use healthier options, like avocado mayo. 4) Feel free to use more bacon! 5) I used on-the-vine tomatoes for this salad. Roma is another great option. You can also use cherry tomatoes. 6) You can use white vinegar but I highly recommend apple cider vinegar in cooking.
