My New Favorite Summer Salad


I tried the following recipe last week, from one of my favorite blogs, Hope Studios. It is easy and really delicious...definitely a keeper. It makes a ton, so if you don't want a gigantic bowl of salad, just cut the recipe in half.

Hope Studio's Easy Tortellini Salad

1 bag of frozen, tri-colored cheese tortellini (plain will work fine if you can't find tri-colored)
1 can artichoke hearts, quartered
1 can large black olives
1 pint grape tomatoes
1/3 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup Ken's Steakhouse Caesar Salad Dressing

Jennifer suggested adding grilled chicken to it if you intend it for a main course, but Steve and I found it plenty filling with the tortellini, so I left the chicken out. We ate it all weekend, and it got more flavorful each day. It takes no time at all to prepare, and is a wonderful summer salad.
