Saint Agur Blue Mac & Cheese Salad – Week 29: As a Salad

Oh man, is it ever hot outside! I needed to find a lighter, more refreshing take on Mac & Cheese. So for this week’s As a Salad theme, I decided to create a Cobb salad–style Mac & Cheese. Easy, versatile, and fresh, this is summer’s go-to salad.

Pasta coated in a creamy fresh herb dressing, garnished with tomatoes, grilled chicken, hard-boiled eggs, Saint Agur blue cheese, bacon, and croutons—a flavour-rich spin on an American classic.


  1. In a bowl, mix all salad dressing ingredients.
  2. Mix in Parmesan, then other short pasta. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Before serving, garnish with tomatoes, Saint Agur cheese, croutons, eggs, bacon or pancetta, and watercress or arugula.
