BBQ Ranch Pasta Salad

BBQ Ranch Pasta Salad

It’s official, I’m on a giant pasta salad kick.  I love everything about pasta, hot or cold.  But there’s something about a pasta salad that is easy and so delicious.  It’s one of those things I can take for lunch and not have to worry if I’m going to have time to go find a microwave.  I can sit at my desk and eat and work.

This pasta salad was delicious.  I loved the BBQ Ranch flavor and the fresh cilantro and topped with Fritos?  Amazing.

BBQ Ranch Pasta Salad

If you can’t find BBQ Ranch (Hidden Valley is the brand I used), just mix some of your favorite BBQ sauce with ranch dressing.  I might do that the next time I make this.  I love homemade ranch as opposed to the bottled dressing.  Add in some of my favorite BBQ sauce and I’d eat the entire bowl.
