This was a whirlwind of a weekend but so much fun! We closed on our new home and then I headed to an amazing blogger conference. It is always such a blast to get together with such amazing friends that I have met through the blogging world. We always learn so much from each other and at the conference and I come back feeling refreshed and inspired.
Last week we had a fun little gathering and I made this delicious BLT Avocado Pasta Salad. I put a little spin on the classic BLT and added some pasta and my favorite…. avocado!
I love fresh and simple ingredients tossed with some pasta. The pasta adds a great texture and really brings everything together.
I added the avocado last minute and it added such a creamy and smooth texture to this amazing salad. The salad gets tossed in a creamy and delicious dressing and you are going to love everything about it. This is perfect for you next potluck and everyone will be raving about this simple and fresh salad!
