Broccoli Bacon Pasta Salad

It's summertime...time for cold salads you can make ahead and grab out of the frig on busy days. I like this easy recipe, as it can be a side for burgers and sandwiches, or is great alone as a meal.

You can add other veggies, whatever you have on hand actually, but I make it just the way it is...such a perfect combo of flavors and textures!

Broccoli Bacon Pasta Salad

4 oz. pasta, cooked and drained (about 2 c. cooked)
1 bunch broccoli, chopped
1/2 c. chopped red onion
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 to 3/4 c. mayo ( I tend to use 3/4 c.)

Mix altogether and refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
