Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Fresh and satisfying, creamy and crunchy! We love the bacon flavor (of course) and are thinking about adding grilled chicken the next time we make it! Yum.

Ingredients

1 box
rotini pasta, 1 lb.
4-5
green onions, chopped
1 pt
cherry tomatoes, halved
1 1/4 c
celery, diced
1 1/4 c
mayonnaise
5 tsp
white vinegar
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 lb
cooked bacon, crumbled
salt & pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water.

In large bowl, combine pasta, green onions, tomatoes and celery. (I didn't have celery today, so I used celery seed instead)

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt & pepper, then pour over pasta mixture. Cover and chill.

Just before serving, add bacon.
