    A filling and delicious main dish salad. I have used turkey bacon and low-fat dressing to lighten it up. Chill time is 1-2 hours.

      I subbed red onion for the chives or green onion and upped the amount of dressing. Still, the salad was a little dry. I think it was just the nature of the tortellini. However, I don't really know how to correct the matter. More dressing would just sit on the outside of the was the cheese filling that was too dry. My guests just didn't eat this. I love tortellini, but have decided not in cold salads. This salad would be excellent with spiral pasta (or any shape) and some raisins....however, that would be another recipe entirely...
