Ingredients

6 slices bacon, chopped into one inch pieces
1/2 pound dried rotini pasta
1/2 cup mayonnaise
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 avocado pitted and sliced

Directions

Step 1: Cook the pasta to al dente or follow instructions on box. When cooked, drain and set aside in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: While pasta is cooking, fry the bacon till crispy then rough chop when cool

Step 3: Dice the tomatoes and add to the cooked pasta

Step 4: Add the chopped bacon to the mix

Step 5: Make the dressing: In a separate bowl, whip together the mayo and lemon juice, dill, salt, pepper, and garlic powder until evenly combined.

Step 6: Add the dressing to the bacon, tomatoes, and pasta

Step 7: Mix gently until every morsel is evenly coated with saucy goodness

Step 8: Score the avocado into squares then scoop them out onto the mixed pasta salad.

I always save this step for last because avocados tend to brown very easily. If you can, store the avocados separately and squeeze a bit of lemon juice over top to keep them from browning. Mix them right before serving.
