This pasta salad is so easy to make and always a hit at a party! 


Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

I brought this pasta salad to my brother’s swim/birthday party a couple of weeks ago when he was in town. It all disappeared so either it was insanely delicious and everyone was fighting over the last noodle, orrrrr they were all completely famished from the swim fest. Technically it could be either, but I am gonna go with the first option. The one where everyone loved it so much that they fought over who gets to lick the bowl.

Oh wait… that might have been me who licked the bowl.Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad


Chicken caesar salad has always been a favorite of mine. In fact, I think it was the first salad I ever enjoyed eating when I was a kid. If it wasn’t caesar, it was just leafy green weeds in need of a gallon of dressing to make it even edible. In recent years I’ve expanded my salad horizons but I still come back to the old classic caesar. It’s a classic for a reason, and that reason is that caesar salad is crazy delicioso. And if you haven’t tried noodles and greens together, you’re about to get your socks knocked off with this pasta salad. The flavors are amazing, it’s incredibly easy to make, and will please even picky non-salad-eaters. Can’t go wrong with a salad like that!

I made this recipe last night and it was great!! Where is your bowl from?! I love it!!

    Hi Sara! Thanks so much – i got that bowl at Home Goods!

Is it better if you wait until the pasta and chicken cool down before you combine everything if you are making ahead of time so the romaine doesnt wilt?


    My current favorite brands are Lighthouse or Newman’s!
