Spring Tortellini Salad

A warm weather favorite, this spring or summer salad will please everyone when entertaining, and is even good the next day. It’s super easy to make, and amazingly delicious!

What you need:

1 package of tortellini (I use three cheese)

1 celery stalk

10 cherry tomatoes – halved

15 slices of radish

15 slices of cucumber

1 handful of spinach

olives – whatever kind you like

balsamic + red wine vinegar to taste

oil to taste

salt + pepper to taste

  1. Boil water in medium sized pot, add tortellini (It cooks in 5 minutes so keep an eye on it!)
  2. While water is boiling, chop your choice of veggies (My ingredients are what I had in my fridge, if you have others, pretty much anything is good in this salad!)
  3. Transfer tortellini to colander, and run cold water over it to stop the cooking process, transfer back to the pot
  4. Add your veggies, salt and pepper and mix in the oil and vinegar
  5. Put in a bowl, cover and chill for one hour, (If your in a pinch, half hour works)

Enjoy!
