Chicken and Tortellini Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ellie_

Children and adults love this simple-to-make Spring dinner salad. I made several changes to the original recipe which was printed in Bon Appetit (May, 1983).

I made this without the chicken, and used a little more coarsely grated Parm for a heftier salad. Very simple, tasty dressing. Of course one could use any combo of seasonal vegetables and fruit. I left out the spinach and celery this time around, and went easy on the dressing. I'll make it again in one form or another.
