Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Macaroni Salad
I made this recipe today and it tasted great, but I did make some changes. I was trying to use up some produce I had on hand, so I used the following:
1/2 cup chopped leeks instead of green onions,
12 oz. rainbow rotini instead of elbow (did have elbow on hand),
I used red wine vinegar (like so much better than white),
4 roma tomatoes, seeded instead of large,
1/2 orange pepper, diced,
2 T. fresh parlsey,
1/2 cup pre-cooked bacon,
1 tsp. Mural of Flavor seasoning -salt free (from Penzey's Spices)Just bought it and thought it would add that little something I think some people said it was missing,
all other ingredients stayed the same,
It made about 1/2 gallon of salad.
Very colorful and I'm waiting till flavors meld and it sits in refrigerator before adjusting seasonings, if needed.
