Summer just isn't summer without a good ole' fashioned BLT sandwich! It's defintely one of my favorite lunches this time of year. But sometimes I like to mix it up with a good salad and this BLT Pasta Salad has become a family favorite! It's filled with all the wonderful things we love about a Bacon- Lettuce and Tomato sandwich ( and yes,that includes the bacon)! It also has some fun pasta, fresh dill, and a delicious creamy buttermilk dressing!

I love to bring this salad to our summer time family gatherings and serve it at our back yard barbecues too! It's the perfect side to whatever's cooking.
