This salad has all the creamy goodness of a classic Caesar salad, but the pasta and avocado take it to a new level. It’s the sort of dish you can make on the fly, or bring to a casual get-together with friends or family.

This Caesar pasta salad is delicious. As far as salads go, this one could well become a favourite.

Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 1 large Cos lettuce
  • 225g fusilli pasta
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 250g bacon, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan, grated
  • 1/4 cup Caesar dressing
  • 1/2 cup croutons

Method

  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to package instructions until al dente. Rinse in cold water and set aside to drain.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon until it is crispy. Set aside.
  3. Rinse, chop and spin the romaine lettuce dry using a salad spinner. If you don’t have a salad spinner, pat dry with a clean towel. The dressing will coat the salad much better if the lettuce isn’t wet. Transfer lettuce to a large mixing bowl. Toss in the diced avocado. Add bacon.
  4. Add the Caesar dressing to really boost the flavour. Toss to evenly coat the lettuce. Add the dressing to taste. Sprinkle with parmesan and croutons.
