Chicken Ceasar Pasta Salad

It’s summertime and it’s been so very HOT already … so I’m leaning back on some of my all time favorite salads to save my butt and keep me cool.

This is like my FAVORITE salad to make … well, I suppose it’s really in the top 5, I love my steak salad too … and the Olive-Y Garden Salad, and the Cabbage Salad …

Anyways … this is ONE of my favorite salads, hows that?

And if you already have the chicken cooked and pasta left over, it’s a no brainer!



Here’s what you need:

Head of romaine lettuce, trimmed, washed and torn/cut into bite size pieces (if you were smart, you’ve already checked out the foodsaver tip!)
1 grilled chicken breast (I generally use a leftover one) cut into bite size pieces
a little bit of pasta, rigatoni or penne work best (cooked)
sprinkle of fresh Parmesan cheese
Cesar Dressing (I prefer Kens Light Cesar)
Croutons

It’s so easy. Dump all in large bowl. Mix well to coat evenly. Serve.

See that picture? That is made up of ALL leftovers … the chicken was grilled for dinner a few nights ago, the salad stuff is ALWAYS prepped and ready to go …  I mean really, this is P E R F E C T.

Give it a try … I think you’ll be surprised (especially if it’s all leftovers!) …
