Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

1/2 lb bacon
2 C  rotisserie chicken
1 C (cooked) bow tie pasta (or spiral)
Lettuce (about 2 cups)
Cherry Tomatoes (about 1/4 cup)

Cut bacon into pieces and fry till crispy.  Set aside on paper towel to drain the grease and let cool completely.  Remove chicken from bones and cut into bite side pieces.  Rinse lettuce and tomatoes.  Break lettuce up into smaller pieces.  Put bacon, chicken, pasta, lettuce, and tomatoes in a large bowl.  Pour enough ranch over it to just coat the salad, you don't want to add to much. 

There isn't an exact science to this recipe.  I added as much lettuce and tomatoes as we like, but you can add less or more depending on your family.  You could also add onions, or whatever else you like.  It's a pretty versatile recipe and can be adapted in many ways.  We loved it because its a simple summer time meal.
