Tortellini Summer Salad {recipe}


I am so excited for Memorial Day!  We are getting away from home and headed to see our families as well as my husband’s brother that we haven’t seen in well over 2 years.  It should be a fabulous weekend 🙂  

Speaking of Memorial Day, it is the official start of Summer in my mind…and therefore BBQs and swimming pools, here we come!!  For the big day, burgers are great…but my favorite part of a good cookout is the sides.  I love trying new salads and desserts.  Here is a yummy salad that is easy to put together, and is hearty enough it could be served as a main dish for a summertime lunch.  Enjoy!

Tortellini Summer Salad

4-6 chicken breasts (cubed & soaked in Zesty Italian Dressing)
48 oz. Cheese Tortellini
1 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes, chopped
1 cup Sliced Olives
1 cup Artichoke Hearts, chopped
2 cups Baby Spinach

Mix all together in a large bowl & toss with your favorite Caesar Dressing.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.

*Just a suggestion…I waited to put in the spinach until just before serving.  Also, I added half the dressing immediately and refrigerated.  I added more right before serving as the noodles soak up a lot of the dressing.  Enjoy!
