Once you've cooked the tortellini, the rest of this salad is a breeze to finish in the microwave. Sour cream provides the mild coating over this memorable medley of pasta, ham and broccoli shared Catherine Allan of Twin Falls, Idaho.
Here’s a great meatless recipe with real Mediterranean flair that’s hearty enough to qualify as an entrée. Laced with a tart vinaigrette dressing and bursting with strips of sweet pepper, onion and zucchini, it’s also colorful enough to serve as a pretty side dish. Thanks to subscriber Stacey Mofle in Universal City, Texas for this tasty dish!
My tempting tortellini salad combines layers upon layers of flavors and textures, and its colors are amazing. It's perfect for a salad luncheon. Other cheese options are Havarti, fontina or Monterey Jack. —Nita Rausch, Dallas, Texas
"This tried-and-true salad is simple to toss together and convenient since you make it ahead," reports May Sisk Hazlet, New Jersey. "Now that my husband and I are retired, we travel a lot and enjoy having more time for family and hobbies."
Pretty and packed with nutrition, this fresh-tasting salad makes a company-special light meal or side dish! “I also add diced purple onion and red bell pepper…or substitute diced cooked chicken and bow-tie pasta for the tortellini.”
