It’s Tangy Tortellini Salad Time!

July is here! Happy Fourth of July!!! Yes, the outdoor grill has been used and it’s time for outdoor picnics!

My recipe for Tangy Tortellini Salad has been retrieved. Later this afternoon the necessary ingredients to make this easy, delicious, colorful salad to enjoy on the Fourth of July will be purchased!

Tangy Tortellini Salad is prepared with a 12-ounce package of frozen Tri-colored Cheese Tortellini and Italian Salad Dressing. I also add in 1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder, 1 TBS. Chopped Parsley and ¼ Cup Black Olives (sliced in half). These ingredients are optional, but my family likes them. This salad is definitely a family favorite!

Easy Directions:

1. Prepare the Tortellini according to the directions on the package.
2. Drain and rinse with cold water and drain again.
3. Place the Tortellini in a bowl.
4. Add about ½ cup of Italian Salad Dressing and stir.
5. Add any optional ingredients.
6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, stirring once or twice.
7. Before serving add extra Italian Salad Dressing, if needed.
8. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.

Happy Fourth of July!!!
