Description

This Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad recipe is quick and easy to make, and tossed with a healthier Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry pasta (I used farfalle, but any shape will work)
  • 1 pound cooked chicken breasts, diced or shredded into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small head of Romaine lettuce, roughly chopped (about 56 cups loosely packed)
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup croutons, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 batch Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing
  • 1/3 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  • (optional) 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta al dente in a large stockpot of generously-salted water, according to package instructions.  Drain the pasta into a colander, then rinse throughly with cold water to stop the cooking process.  Drain pasta completely, then return it to the stockpot.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and toss until combined.  Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
