I'm not sure where I got this recipe from, but I have had it for over 30 years. I usually garnish the top of the salad with crushed tortilla chips. Serving size is approximate (depending on appetites) as a side dish. NOTE: Cooking time is time it takes to cook the tortellini.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 9 ounces cheese tortellini
  • 1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 12 green pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olives, sliced
  • 12 cup salsa (you pick the heat, but I use "medium")
  • 13 cup thousand island dressing
  • 12 teaspoon cumin


  1. Cook the tortellini. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Combine beans, tomato, pepper and olives in a large bowl. Add tortellini and toss.
  3. Make the dressing - combining the salsa, thousand island salad dressing and cumin.
  4. Just before serving, pour dressing over the tortellini salad mixture and toss.
