Soul Food Saturday #14

Good Morning, Bekki is in the kitchen today whipping up a salad that eats like a meal. Perfect for these hot nights when supper needs to be light yet filling. Or a wonderful lunch idea any time of the year!

In this house salads are not always frequent. But when they grace our table my husband requests them to be packed, hearty and filling. This salad doesn't disappoint. It has plenty to fill you up but
not leave you feeling so full you can’t enjoy the rest of your afternoon out.  It has a few simple ingredients that come together for that quick meal before the next event or even great to travel with. I know some are squeamish of mayo in the summer and heat, but if you keep it in the cooler it will be just fine.

Bowtie Chicken Caesar Salad
1 lb. cooked bow tie pasta, drained
1 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
½ c. creamy Italian dressing
1 c. real mayo
2 cans water packed chicken breast, drained
2 c. romaine hearts, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl add mayo, dressing, cheese, and mix to combine. Set aside. In a large bowl add pasta, drained chicken, and chopped romaine. Toss to combine. Add dressing mixture and toss until evenly distributed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
