I am a girl who loves a good salad! This chicken caesar pasta salad is one of my new favorites, and I love that not only is it delicious, it’s also really easy to make. It’s a delicious mix between a green salad and a pasta salad, with all the delicious flavor of a caesar salad. What could be better than that?
