Caesar Pasta Salad

A simple, easy-to-make salad that tastes just like a Caesar salad. This Caesar pasta salad is the perfect cool side for something hot off the grill. It’s a nice change from ‘just’ a green salad. And even though it’s a pasta salad, it still feels light.

Caesar Pasta Salad

I suggest adding just half the lemon to this salad, then tasting to see if you need to add more. The lemon does add a freshness so you don’t want to leave it out completely. Any ole pasta will do, but I prefer to use a variety that ‘grabs’ onto the dressing and toppings.

Also try my Italian pasta salad and my Brussels Sprouts Caesar salad.
