Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until chilled. Transfer macaroni to a large salad bowl.
  2. Stir mayonnaise, vinegar, celery, tomato, green onions, Cheddar cheese, salt, and black pepper into macaroni until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill salad at least 2 hours.
  3. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. Let bacon cool; crumble when cooled.
  4. Mix bacon into macaroni salad to serve.

Absolutely delicious. Make sure you crumble crisp bacon well and put in close to the time that you serve this salad so it will be nice and crisp. The celery takes the place of lettuce, and the macaroni takes the place of bread. Walla.....you have a BLT

This really is good. I used reduced fat mayo and cheddar and center cut bacon to lighten it, and it tastes delicious. The white vinegar really gives a little tang to the mayo-based dressing. I did squeeze out some of the tomato seeds and juice for fear of it thinning out the dressing. I agree with the last reviewer, add the bacon right before serving, otherwise, it will get soggy.
