The BLT is a quintessential sandwich combination - bacon, lettuce and tomato - but it’s delicious far beyond that application, and there’s so much room for interpretation. In this summery pasta salad, we use pancetta in place of bacon, arugula for lettuce, and sweet bursts of cherry tomatoes. Toss it all together with pasta and a vibrant dill and honey mustard dressing, and you’ve got a truly delicious meal on your hands. Make sure you pick a short pasta shape with lots of nooks and crannies for all the crispy pancetta and vinaigrette to hide in, like the pictured Nodi Marini - it makes for the perfect bite.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring often until browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, mix up the dressing. In a large serving bowl, add the apple cider vinegar, whole grain mustard, honey, Calabrian chili paste, salt and dill. Whisk together until smooth and combined. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking to create a creamy emulsified dressing.
  3. To the large serving bowl with the dressing, add the pasta, chopped arugula, tomatoes, and the cooked pancetta. Toss together to combine. Serve room temperature or cold.
