How To Make Peach Pasta Salad
You’ll love our easy peach pasta salad that’s filled with the fresh taste of peaches together with bacon, thyme, celery, and more spiced with curry powder!
Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally until evenly browned.
Drain the bacon slices in a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, crumble the bacon and set aside.
Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in the shell pasta and return to a boil.
Cook the pasta uncovered for about about 13 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still slightly firm.
Rinse the pasta thoroughly in cold water several times to chill, and drain well.
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.
Reduce the blender speed to low and slowly pour in the canola oil into the blender to make a creamy dressing.
Place the bacon, cooked pasta, peaches, parsley, celery, red bell pepper, and green onions into a large salad bowl and toss to combine.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss again to coat with dressing.
Refrigerate salad for 1 hour before serving.
