This gluten-free BLT Pasta Salad is the perfect pasta salad to serve a crowd!  The salty bacon, along with the sweet tomatoes, and fresh crisp lettuce all dressed in a creamy dressing is so nourishing and flavorful. Such a great meal for any gathering! Add perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs for added flavor and protein!

I love using gluten-free rice pasta (made with only brown rice as the ingredient), because it’s easier for me to digest, and nobody knows it’s gluten-free! I make this as an easy BBQ or dinner side, and it’s great for leftovers, too! My two favorite brands are Jovial and Tinkyada.

  1. I never leave a comment or review, but this pasta salad is amazing! If you are a BLT fan, this is for you. It’s so delicious! I’ll be making it for my daughter’s first birthday.

  2. Super delicious salad! I used spinach instead of lettuce because that’s what I had, and instead of eggs, added a chopped apple. The star of this recipe is the dressing, seriously!

  3. Delicious! I made this for a family bbq with the eggs (no hot sauce) & it was a hit.
