Easy Layered Tortellini Salad
It's not too much like fall yet to share one more main dish salad recipe. This is a sort of adaptation of a recipe I used to make a lot, years ago. I've recently been preparing it again and we have really enjoyed it. Since it's so easy and adaptable, I thought others might like to try it, too.
EASY LAYERED TORTELLINI SALAD
1 pkg. frozen cheese tortellini (I like the tri-colored variety)
Lettuce or greens of your choice
Tomatoes or cherry/grape tomatoes
Chopped ham, chicken, or turkey
In a large glass bowl, make at least two layers each of salad greens, cooked tortellini, tomatoes, and meat.
Drizzle ranch dressing to taste over the top of the salad. Sprinkle with bacon bits and chill until serving.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
