Going to a get together and want to bring something that is not only different but yummy for all ages? Looking for a side dish on a steamy night? Then this is it folks!! A good friend of mine from our co-op, Colleen, made this at our last potluck and since I have been OBSESSED about it. And the best part, it can be thrown together in about 10 minutes, no joke! Ready?
I call it a Sunshine Salad!
All you do is cook and cool the tortellini, slice some strawberries, add a can of drained mandarin oranges, pour the poppy seed dressing on top, toss, and voila! Good to go! The dressing is sweet, the strawberries add some tartness to it, and the cheese tortellini adds some depth. It is different and a sure crowd pleaser. It has been quite warm here and this chilled salad is a lovely side dish for burgers. Let me know what you think!!
