When I think of summer and cookouts, I think of few things. Pasta salad is what I make for pretty much every get-together in the summer. And Caesar salad is one of my husband’s favorite things to have for dinner in the summer. So I combined the two and made a delicious pasta salad that will disappear so quickly at your get together. You can make this Caesar pasta salad ahead of time, and then just add the dressing before you serve it.
To make this Caesar pasta salad a little better for you I used yogurt to make the dressing. You can use Greek yogurt if you want to bump up the protein even more. Dreamfields pasta has 5 grams of fiber per 1 cup of cooked pasta. So it is something you can feel a little better about eating. Along with the veggies and the homemade Caesar dressing, you can feel good about the side dishes and your next cookout. So be sure to head over to Dreamfields and get your hands on a coupon, so you can make this pasta salad right away!
