    A Bountiful Kitchen: Caesar Pasta Salad - add chicken for delicious summer meal

  • Kip-Rita Wiggins

    caesar pasta salad Caesar Pasta Salad 1 lb pasta, any shape (I like Radiatore) cooked al dente 1 envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing, dry 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halve them if you like 2 large or 6 hearts of Romaine lettuce, washed, chopped 4 cups croutons, home made or store bought 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese* 1/2 to 3/4 (32 oz) bottle Cardinis Original Caesar Dressing*, refrigerated before using if possible Make ahead- if possible, the night before serving: Place cooked pasta in a bowl. Sprinkle with dry Good Seasons Italian dressing and about 1/2 cup of the bottled Cardinis dressing. Refrigerate overnight. The next day, before serving: Place the prepared pasta, grape tomatoes, chopped lettuce, croutons and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Toss with about 1/2 of the bottle of dressing. Let sit for a few minutes, add additional dressing to taste just before serving. Tips: -I purchase the grape tomatoes, Romaine, croutons, Parmesan cheese and Cardini's dressing at Costco. -*I usually prefer fresh grated Parmesan, but in this case, I like the bagged grated Parmesan. It holds up better and won't "fade" into the salad. A big bag will last forever, and can be frozen, if needed. Found in the refrigerator section next to other bagged, grated cheese. -*If you can't find Cardini's, any other name brand of Caesar dressing will work. Also, it's best to refrigerate the salad dressing before adding to the salad. Helps keep the salad cooler. -If grape or cherry tomatoes aren't available or too expensive, use chopped Roma tomatoes instead. -Adding chopped or sliced chicken makes this a nice main dish salad. -This makes a huge salad, enough to serve about 30-40 as a side dish. Depending on how polite your peeps are.

watermelon salad

Directions: The "cake" is watermelon. Cut the ends off the watermelon to form the top & bottom of the cake; then cut away the rind from the sides of the cake. Use cookie cutters to cut cantaloupe flowers and honeydew leaves/ Use toothpicks to attach to cake. Decorate with additional strawberries, blueberries, apples, grapes, and oranges. Simple & yummy!
