What's in it

Ingredients

3 cups grilled chicken, cut into bite-size pieces (we just used this leftover chicken, but you could also use rotisserie chicken)
6 oz (about 1/2 box) penne pasta, cooked and cooled*
4 cups Romaine lettuce, cut into small pieces
1 cucumber, diced
1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (we used pre-shredded cheese that you buy in a bag)
1 bottle of your favorite Caesar salad dressing (I love this Organic Litehouse dressing- not an advertisement, just my honest opinion)

How to cook it

Directions

  • Mix together all ingredients EXCEPT for the dressing. Pour desired amount of dressing on top (we used about half a bottle) and serve immediately (the salad starts to go soggy if you pour the dressing on ahead of time).
