Tortellini, Fresh Tomato and Pea Salad

  • 1 lb frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup salad dressing made with balsamic vinegar (you can use store bought but it's so much nicer to make it fresh)
  • 6 - 8 large roma tomatoes, cut in rough chunks
  • 1 cup mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onion

Cook the tortellini according to package directions, adding the peas during the last bit of cooking time to just allow them to defrost (about 30 seconds), drain and place in a large bowl.

Add half the salad dressing; toss gently and allow to cool. Just before serving, add tomato, salad greens and onion and the rest of the dressing. Toss gently and serve.

  • Yields: 4-6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
