  6. Place the vinegar, sugar, basil, thyme, garlic, salt, curry powder, and black pepper into the pitcher of a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.

  7. Reduce the blender speed to low and slowly pour in the canola oil into the blender to make a creamy dressing.

  8. Place the bacon, cooked pasta, peaches, parsley, celery, red bell pepper, and green onions into a large salad bowl and toss to combine.

  9. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss again to coat with dressing.

  10. Refrigerate salad for 1 hour before serving.
