The Freshman Cook: Tortellini and Tomato Salad /#FoodieExtravaganza

Please Rate this Recipe

I know it is still winter, but I love summer salads. And cookbooks. Which is how I ended up making this Tortellini and Tomato Salad! I was browsing through a cookbook when I saw this salad and I loved all the ingredients including the tortellini! I was looking for a recipe that contained a noodle for today’s post. So, it all came together perfectly! The prep of this salad is simple and easy! Cook some tortellini, chop some veggies, blend together some dressing, and you are done! ¬†Tortellini and Tomato Salad¬†
