Prep this salad ahead of time!
For convenience, you can make all the components of this salad ahead of time, store separately overnight, then assemble right before serving. You can also use a different shaped pasta if desired like penne or rotini.
I think mixing up the ranch dressing packet is worth the effort, but of course, feel free to use your favorite bottled ranch in a pinch.

A friend of mine made this BLT Salad for the 4th of July, and I’ve been dying to share it with you all ever since because it’s so darned good. If you’re lucky to have fresh summer tomatoes in your garden, it’s even more amazing! I made this for a family cookout recently and it was gone in no time!
