Vegan BLT Pasta Salad

Dinner, Lunch, Vegan

You have got to try this Vegan BLT Pasta Salad!  My ingredients included the most delicious vegan bacon, organic quinoa pasta, fresh arugula, ripe cherry tomatoes, avocado and some other key ingredients.  The vegan bacon added a tasty crunch, and the salad was accented by a dressing made from vegan mayo, olive oil and chives.

This is something you can serve at your family gatherings.  I love to buy my fresh veggies from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use at
