Tortellini Salad with Homemade Dressing

Updated on July 15, 2014

I love pasta salads and especially one that can be served for a special occasion. This recipe for Tortellini Salad with Homemade Dressing is simple, easy and impressive.

I like to use tortellinis from the refrigerator case for the fresh taste and they take little time to prepare. To save even more time add the peas and corn to the same pot when cooking the tortellini.

Tip: Serve as a main dish for 4 on top of lettuce or spinach leaves.

      I don't often cook with too many types of pastas but they really do add character to mealtime. I think I am going to do a little experimenting in this area just for fun.
