Bacon and Avocado Macaroni Salad

Recipe: Bacon and Avocado Macaroni Salad

Summary: This simple macaroni salad of just three main ingredients comes together so beautifully as they get tossed in an incredibly creamy lemon-thyme dressing. It has such a wonderful burst of fresh flavors with just enough savoriness from the fatty, crisp, salty bacon. It’s become my most favorite summer picnic recipes yet!

Ingredients

    • 12 ounces elbow pasta
    • 5 slices bacon, diced
    • 2 avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
