  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional, for garnish)


  1. Cook the macaroni according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Allow the macaroni to cool completely.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked macaroni, crumbled bacon, halved cherry tomatoes, and chopped romaine lettuce.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper until smooth and well combined.
  4. Pour the dressing over the macaroni mixture and toss gently until everything is evenly coated in the dressing.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
  6. Before serving, give the salad a final toss to redistribute the dressing. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
  7. Serve chilled and enjoy!
