A Different Seven Layer Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sweet PQ

Here's another version of seven layer salad, but this recipe starts with spinach tortellini and uses no peas. It makes a nice change from the usual combination. You can use regular bacon in place of the canadian bacon for a change of taste.

This was yummy. We had to make a change because we're vegetarians, so I used 2 hardboiled eggs instead of the bacon. Also, I didn't see that we're supposed to chill ahead of time, so we just ate it after I finished putting it together. Even the 6 year old ate it. Yay!
