This has been in my recipe box forever so I'm not sure where it came from. This is light so a good pick for those hot days when you just don't feel like eating much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar and bouillon for the dressing.
  2. Combine rotini, bacon, tomato, and green onion.
  3. I recommend waiting until you are ready to serve before mixing in the lettuce.

A neat combo of flavors. Having made this a couple of times, first per the recipe, here are the things I would change: Add 1/2 the dressing, let the pasta salad chill, at serving time add lettuce, remainder of dressing and toss. Use 12 Oz. pasta, not 7. Use 1 more slice of bacon. Add 1 more tomato. Substitute chopped red onion for green onion and increase the amount.

This is my husbands favorite summer salad. The only adaption that I made was substituting thinly sliced celery for the lettuce. I don't have to worry about the lettuce wilting and it holds up better in the fridge.

This is a fabulous salad! I took it to a pool party, and there wasn't a sniff left. I was afraid the lettuce would wilt when mixed in, so I just layered it on top. I was also a little put off by the amount of Realemon, but I made it exactly as written, and it was wonderful! I'll be making this again on a regular basis. Great take-along dish.
