|Quick, easy & delicious summer meal: Tortellini Salad|
I opted for a quick and easy dinner that wouldn't heat up the house. From stove top and fridge to dinner table in just 15 minutes. Not too shabby.
There are countless ways to make this salad. The base is cheese tortellini and you can add whatever veggies you have on hand.
Toss it all with your favorite salad dressing, serve it with a side of french bread, and you're good to go!
Tortellini Salad Recipe
Frozen Cheese Tortellini
*Any of the following can be substituted with your favorite veggies
Vinaigrette / Italian / or favorite Dressing
Cook frozen cheese tortellini according to directions. While tortellini is boiling, dice cucumbers and tomatoes; shred carrots and zucchini; slice olives; rise spinach and blot dry. Once tortellini is cooked, drain and rinse in cold water.
Combine all ingredients and toss with your choice of salad dressing (I prefer this dill vinaigrette or Italian). Top with a scattering of Parmesan cheese (optional).
Serve immediately or chill before serving. Goes well with toasted french bread.
Makes a quick, cool summer meal!
