Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad
Three Bean Salad

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu        Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Another pasta Caesar salad, this one with spicy chicken strips.  You can do them in a nonstick skillet or use a grill pan on the barbecue. A quick and easy dinner for midweek! Besides... I still have some anchovy paste to use...

Total time: 30 minutes
    I know the classic Caesar Salad is made with Romaine lettuce, and dressed with a raw egg, olive oil and lots of garlic.  This dressing lightens it, makes it a bit healthier, but still keeps the flavor of the original Caesar.  Plus, it makes a great main course for summer!
