This is great as an appetizer when served with toothpicks. BUT, it can be a side dish, salad, or even a meal if you like.

I have been making something very similar for years, and it's always a hit at parties and potlucks. Using all the same ingredients, minus the olives, I toss it all together and serve as a Caesar Pasta Salad. Costco's Tricolore Cheese Tortellini adds extra color to the dish. Thanks for posting!

Caesar Tortellini is really dreamy! LOVE sauce that's really creamy! Made this for lunch with sald, true! Can NOT believe is healthy and low fat too!
