Colorful Pasta Salad with Antioxidant Rich Veggies and Vegan Caesar Dressing

Vegan Caesar pasta 1This rich vegan Caesar dressing can definitely take any pasta salad to the next level. I absolutely love Caesar dressing on almost anything.  This vegan version cuts out the saturated fat and cholesterol of eggs and cheese that are found in traditional dressings. Plus the organ, non GMO tofu gives it a protein kick.

I layered colorful veggies such as tomato, yellow pepper, red pepper and English cucumber on top of my rotini pasta underneath before mixing it all together.  This was AMAZING- and it’s al thanks to the dressing.  Obviously you can use any veggies you want.  My husband doesn’t even like tomatoes or peppers but with the dressing he gobbled everything up.

I actually doubled the recipe below and used an entire box of rotini.  You can use the recipe below with about 1/2 the pasta or a little less.  I also drizzled a little balsamic dressing over the pasta with the Caesar.

This Vegan Caesar dressing is from the cook book Chloe’s Cookbook by Chloe Coscarelli:
