1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Drain pasta; let cool. Place cooled pasta in a large serving bowl with the bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, red onion, salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, blue cheese, salt and pepper. Pour over pasta mixture; stir well. Gently fold in the avocado. For best flavor, refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
