Floating Olive Branch
Summer BLT Pasta Salad Jars Recipe

Serves 4 


1lb. penne pasta, cooked according to the instructions on the packaging and chilled 

2 cups baby spinach, chopped 

1/2 cup red onion, peeled and diced 

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 

1 cup peas, if frozen, thawed 

1 cup cheddar cheese, cut into cubes 

1 cup cooked bacon, chopped 

1/4 cup fresh scallions, chopped 

1/4 cup Bacon Infused Olive Oil 

4 Tbs. Thyme White Balsamic Vinegar 

2 tsp. Parmesan Seasoning Blend 



Divide pasta between 4 large-sized mason jars or between 2 extra large jars. Layer the spinach, onion, tomatoes, peas, cheddar, bacon, and scallions, filling the jars 3/4 full with the ingredients (leaving plenty of room near the top). Divide the olive oil, balsamic, and parmesan seasoning between the jars, and secure the jars with lids. Refrigerate or keep chilled until ready to serve. Before serving, give the jars a hearty shake, tossing the ingredients together and thoroughly seasoning. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
