Tortellini Salad with Thai Dressing

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by PalatablePastime

This is a great salad for warm weather. The flavor is fresh and just a bit spicy. It is quite easy to prepare, although I did make a few changes: I blanched the snow peas before adding them to the salad, and I added some honey to the dressing to give it just a little more sweetness. But this salad would be outstanding either way. Thanks for the recipe!
