Slimming World Recipe:- BLT Pasta Salad With Mustard & Balsamic Vinaigrette

Once you try this pasta salad you will wonder why you've never eaten it before! Take the delicious combination of bacon, lettuce and tomato and instead of slapping it between 2 bits of white bread, mix with pasta and a delicious balsamic and wholegrain mustard Vinaigrette.  A light, yet filling, summer salad that's also Slimming World friendly.  This recipe serves 4 but I eat one serving and take the rest to to work for a few days!


Extra Easy syn value:- 2 syns per serving (serves 4)

Healthy extras:- None
You will need- 

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 small clove of garlic, minced or very finely chopped
300g dried pasta shells or bows
10 slices bacon, all visible fat removed, and cooked
Large handful of cherry tomatoes, diced
1/2 iceberg lettuce, finely chopped

Method- 

Cook the pasta according to the instructions

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by whisking together the olive oil, mustard, balsamic, salt, pepper and garlic until combined.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain and set aside to cool for 10 mins.  Once cooled, mix in with the vinaigrette.  If you are serving straight away mix the bacon, lettuce and tomato together with the pasta.

If, like me, you want to take this to work throughout the week, store the bacon, lettuce and tomato separately in a sealed container.  This keeps everything fresh, mix together with the pasta once you are ready to serve

Notes-

Syn calculations are all carried out as a paying Slimming World member. I am not a consultant!  It is always recommended to check syn values yourself.
