Absolutely delicious. I added additional broccoli and an additional half of the dressing.

I've made this before without the tortellini. But this is the only way I'll make this from now on. I used currants instead of raisins and didn't have sunflower seeds. It still turned out great! Will make again! Thanks.

I loved this! I left out the raisins and sunflower seeds, used green onions instead of red, balsamic mayo instead of regular and honey instead of sugar. I also added garlic powder (thanks, Kittencal!) and salt. Not really the same recipe after all that, I suppose, but wonderful all the same. Thank you!

Made this for a family picnic a few days ago. Lots of rave reviews. I left the onion out - picky eater pleaser. Doubled the recipe and used the precooked already crumbled bacon. Next time I will make just a bit more of the dressing. Will make again and again I am sure.

We had a big crowd at my house this weekend and I wanted to make some type of a veggie salad to go with my ribs and potato salad, and this was it! Very tasty indeed! I loved the tortellini added, and with craisins substituting the raisins it was terrific!

I used the fresh packaged Tortellini in the refridgerator section of the grocery store. Instead of the hard or frozen kind, it works much better and I findthat it isn't as soggy and stays fresh and yummy!

This was wonderful. I used Spinach Ricotta tortellini, it was an 8 oz dry pack which doubles in size, so i has alittle bit of pooled dressing at the bottom - no big deal. I added some other mixed veggies and cooked them first, and threw in the raw onion, some celery and cucumbers in the mens salads. I opted to not put the seeds or raisins in because we dont like them, but ever since i made this ive been craving more - a truely exelent recipe cookiedog

This is really, really good. I made this a while ago and if I remember correctly I used frozen or boxed tortellini. Whatever kind you use, be careful not to stir too much or overcook it- this would make for a soggy salad. Thanks!

I liked this mostly because it was a change from "regular broccoli or regular pasta" salad.
