Chopped Pasta Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe
Chopped salad gets a flavor punch with the addition of bacon, blue cheese and honey mustard salad dressing. A surprise ingredient is tiny pieces of al dente pasta called ditalini. My favorite brand of dijon honey mustard salad dressing is Brianna’s, found at most grocery chains. Serve with fresh, crusty buttered bread. Many thanks to A Beautiful Bite for this recipe.
