Tortellini & Chicken Caesar Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
This is a great salad in the summer and a perfect way to use leftover grilled chicken.
Loved this quick, cool summer salad. I used diced chicken I had previously cooked and froze (I always have a bag or two in the freezer!) to cut down on time. Will definitely make again. And again.
Delicious lunch salad! I added corn, peas, avocado, and carrot; and used Quorn meatless diced chicken instead of the chicken. Thank you, Lee, for sharing this recipe.

FANTASTIC! A Salad everyone loves...
We love this salad as a one-dish meal. To add flavor, marinate the cooked tortellini in the Caesar salad dressing for an hour or so, then continue with Step 2 and 3. I give this 5 stars.
The salad was good, but it didn't blow me away. I made it exactly by the recipe. I think the dressing wasn't one that I cared for a whole lot....maybe another dressing would make me like it better. The dressing was what the entire salad tasted like - I couldn't taste the chicken. A great idea as far as all the ingredients in it- I think I could make it taste like 5 stars with some tweaking.
I feel so badly about this review. I wanted to love this and I couldn't. All the elements were good, but-and remember this is just one person's opinion-there were just too many elements combined. I think it's neither a cold pasta salad or a vegetable salad. It's just too confusing. If you make this take justmbeth's hint and cut the chicken into smaller pieces. My hint is that if you like olives in salad ditch the nasty canned ones and buy from an olive bar and slice yourself.
This salad was very good. I used the Purdue chicken shortcuts but I still added it in with the onion & garlic to heat it up & combine the flavors. I will definitely be adding this recipe to my recipe box.
We loved this salad. Next time I may add a bit more lettuce and cut the chicken into smaller pieces.
