Caesar pasta salad with whole wheat noodles, shredded chicken, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, almonds, and homemade Greek yogurt caesar dressing. It’s seriously so easy to make!



  • 2 cups (4 oz.) dry whole wheat pasta, such as rotini or penne
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped, about 6 cups
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded chicken
  • 2 medium tomatoes on the vine, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, roasted
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing


  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to the box instructions until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine the pasta with romaine lettuce, shredded chicken, tomatoes, Parmesan, almonds, and Caesar dressing. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.


  • Leftovers: Pasta salad tastes the best the same day. It will soak up the dressing the longer it sits, especially after it’s been refrigerated. If you want to enjoy it the next day, have some extra Caesar dressing on hand to toss the pasta with before serving.
