Are you like me the gluten-free goddess who never has gluten-free bread in the house?  Well I have a solution for you! Avocado BLT Pasta Salad with Creamy Sriracha Dressing is where it’s at!

Avocado BLT Pasta Salad with Creamy Sriracha Dressing

Growing up I loved making and eating a good old BLT.  So simple, yet so delicious it’s something about the warm toast and bacon paired with the crisp lettuce and fresh tomatoes; it just screams summer.  I know, I know it’s officially fall, but I just can’t let the beautiful sunshine go.  This Avocado BLT Pasta Salad with Creamy Sriracha Dressing is my take on the perfect BLT, but when you don’t have GF bread.  I added a bit of avocado, and a bit of heat with the Sriracha for added creaminess and a bit of heat.  Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

1 Box Gluten Free Penne Pasta

4 Slices Thick Cut Peppered Bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 Avocado, peeled and diced

1 Cup Cherry tomatoes, quartered
