I have fond memories of going out to lunch with my grandma when I was growing up.

At the local diner we went to, one or both of us would usually order a club sandwich. It was just our thing.

Club Sandwich Ingredients

This pasta salad is a spin on a club sandwich. Turkey, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese all coated in creamy ranch dressing that’s spiked with a hint of barbecue sauce.

Nothing fancy but club sandwiches aren’t fancy – but they are definitely good.

It’s a spinoff of this BLT Pasta Salad I made last summer that turned out to be a reader favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) uncooked farfalle (bowtie) pasta (rigatoni, ziti, small shells, etc. may be substituted)
  • about 6 cups romaine lettuce
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces deli turkey breast, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • about 3/4 cup cooked bacon, diced small (I use one 2.5-ounce package precooked bacon and microwave it for 1 minute to save time, about 10 slices)
  • 1 to 1.5 cups shredded cheese (I use a Mexican blend)
  • 3 to 4 green onions, sliced into thin rounds
  • about 1/2 cup ranch dressing, or more if desired (mayo may be substituted)
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce (I prefer 4 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain, and add to a large bowl.
  2. Add the lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, turkey, cheese, green onions, and toss to combine; set aside.
  3. To a small bowl, add the ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, pepper, stir to combine, and evenly drizzle over the salad. If necessary, add additional ranch as desired to evenly coat the salad. Serve immediately after dressed. Salad is best fresh.

  4. This definitely looks like a crowd-pleaser for sure! :)

  5. I love pasta salads and have several recipes on my blog, but this is a combo I don’t have. It sounds delicious!

  6. I’m going to make this salad, but I just want to double check the nutrition info.
    Can’t believe that the counts are so low. Just what I need to slow down a hungry lunch appetite.

    • If you yield 10 servings out of the batch, yes that is the approximate estimate based on an automated tool. As always, do your own math if it’s of utmost importance to your health.

  7. I would like to pin your recipes but I don’t have that option available. I don’t have a printer either. I would love to have access to your recipes without having to search your pinterest page. Is there another option available?.

  8. hey girl- this salad looks so yummy! Right up my alley!

  9. It’s going to be 99 degrees this weekend. I’m making this for dinner.
