1 (2.1 ounce) package
Bob Evans® Express pre-cooked bacon

sun-dried tomato salad dressing (can also use Italian or Greek style dressing)
fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
cherry tomatoes, cut in half
kalamata olives, chopped
sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
Honestly, I shouldn't even rate this because I changed it so much, but I never would have thought to use bacon with the Greek dressing and I'm sure it was very good as written. I didn't use the brand name bacon, I used rotini pasta, frozen cherry tomatoes from this summer, black olives, shredded mozzarella, and I forgot the sundried tomatoes. I also threw in some Parmesan. It was quite good, though, and I like the bacon better than the pepperoni I usually put in.
This is a good guideline for a GREAT salad. I used prosciutto (not microwaved) in place of the bacon and subsituted feta fot the mozzarella. I also used a smokey tomatoe dressing I found at Sunflower Market. I eyeballed the cherry tomatoes, Kalmata olives (a must) and sundried tomatoes (also a must) mixed and sprinkeled parasean over the top. It was the first thing gone at the party. Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!
very flavorful pasta salad - i love the combo of ingredients. I've made it several times now, sometimes subbing ingredients when I've run out: feta cheese although I think milder mozzarella as the recipe calls for is much better with the flavors. I didn't have dressing one time so I just splashed some balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, and couple tablespoons of dijon mustard and it turned out well!
Delicious! I accidentally got shredded mozzarella, but it was great anyway. Very quick and easy to make! My family loves it, and asked for the recipe! I will definitely be making it again.
Made this for the first time tonight. Liked it a lot, but I had to add just a bit of fresh basil for more flavor. Will definitely be making this again.
