When this dish goes on a buffet, it's a real eye-catcher with its colorful layers. People enjoy the unique addition of cheese tortellini. This salad always goes fast!

Here's a fun twist on the traditional seven-layer salad that's great for large gatherings any time of year. It combines lettuce and tomato with Reuben sandwich fixings. I like to buy pastrami in 1/4-inch slices at the deli counter and chop it up at home, but you can use leftover corned beef instead. —Amy Smith, Avon, Connecticut
A salad like this one is an appealing accompaniment to almost any dinner. You can change the mix of ingredients to include layers of your favorites. I like the tangy vinaigrette dressing with it, but ranch and other types are also very good.
