cups chopped tomatoes (2 to 3 large)
4
cups lightly packed torn leaf lettuce

1/2
cup sour cream
1/4
cup mayonnaise
1
tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon cracked black pepper

Directions

  • 1 Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 5 to 8 minutes, stirring often, until crisp; drain on paper towels. Set aside 1/4 cup bacon for garnish.

Expert Tips

The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Assemble salad just before serving.

Look for juicy ripe tomatoes for this recipe and store them at room temperature to maintain their flavor. Reserve any leftover tomato juice and seeds from cutting the tomatoes and add them to the dressing for additional flavor.
