I've made this twice. It's easy to put together and it's good. I would use Gerard's Caesar dressing and Tysons canned white chicken. Read More

With added my added changes.......I'd give a 5 star rating. I made this "as instructed" a couple of months ago. For me there was too so much pasta that it was dry and you couldn't even taste the onions peppers etc. I salvaged my salad by pulling out a lot of the pasta and adding additional onions bell pepper kalamata olives and additional dressing for taste and moisture. With these changes.......I'd give a 5 star rating. Read More

This was yummy! I loved how easy it was to throw together and how it did not get dry like some of these types of salads do upon sitting in the fridge. I used rotini pasta but that was my only change. Great flavor and the whole family enjoyed it. I would even make this w/o the chicken if I didn't have any on hand. A definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This is very good. I added sliced Kalamata olives and sliced grape tomatoes on the top. I made it with shrimp and home made Caesar dressing. Read More

I made as is except with rotini spiral pasta. The pasta to chicken ratio was fine but I'm glad I had a full bottle of caesar salad dressing as it needed the whole thing. I felt it needed more crunch too. I added more onion and pepper but wished I had celery on hand. Last like so many others have noted it was a bit bland. Next time I'll experiment with oregano and other herbs/spices. Read More

I made this as written and found this kind of bland. I added 1/4 teaspoon dried basil to jazz it up and it was better. Still not what I had hoped for, so sorry for a not so good review. Read More
