BLT Salad GF-Updated

Before we went gluten free, we used to enjoy BLT salad.  Now that we are able to find decent gf pasta, I decided to try it again.

1 lb. pkg.  Gluten Free Penne Pasta
1 lb. pkg thick cut bacon
3-4 ripe roma tomatoes, chopped, or a cup or so of grape tomatoes whole or sliced in half
3 cups sliced romaine lettuce
1-2 ripe avocado cut into chunks

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 TBS cider vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

Mix together mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt & pepper. Cook pasta & drain and rinse in cool water. Slice bacon, cook, and crumble. Mix bacon, tomato and lettuce, and pasta in a large bowl. Toss dressing mix with pasta. Add avocado and gently mix. Serve immediately.  I served this with PW's Olive Cheese Bread on these GF Hot Dog Buns.
