I've prepared this fast-to-fix salad for my bridge club several times, and I always get requests for the recipe," reports Susan Graham of Cherokee, Iowa. "If I don't have leftover roast beef on hand, I use sliced roast beef from the deli with equally tasty results."
Layers of red cabbage, green spinach, cherry tomatoes and cheese-filled tortellini make this layered salad a real centerpiece. You can alter the amount of dressing to your liking, if you wish.
