 Salads offer a wide variety of healthy vitamins and nutrients.  These important nutrients provide fuel for the body and are great for energy.  This classic Chicken Ceasar Salad is packed with healthy vegetables, protein and vegetable pasta.  Salads are a great staple to enjoy for lunch and dinner.

 This Ceasar Salad is made with healthy ingredients and vegetable enriched pasta that adds a refreshing flavor.  Everyone’s favorite salad can be made in a pinch.  Simply boil water on the stove top for the pasta.  Cook vegetable pasta just until tender then drain it in the sink and run cold water over it to shock the pasta. By shocking the pasta, it will stop the cooking process.  No body likes pasta that is soggy and mushy.  Cooling it down will ensure it doesn’t cook anymore and it will leave the pasta with a tender taste.

In 10 minutes, this salad will be ready to serve.  In a large bowl, combine romaine lettuce, chopped chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, cheese and croutons.  Add olive oil and ceasar dressing.  Finally, toss the salad and add freshly cracked peppercorn pepper to add taste.
