Tina was going to a BBQ and wanted to bring a salad. Nothing exciting popped into my head so I asked my friend Karol who shared this one. It was a complete hit and won best side of the day:)
What you'll need:
Bag of Romaine Lettuce
3/4 carton of Grape Tomatoes halved
1 bunch green onions, chopped~I used some of the green as well
1/2 lb of bacon chopped and fried~Karol said Bacon Bits are good too
1/2 C Mozzarella
1 pkg Tortellini cooked and chilled
1/4-1/3 C Ranch Dressing
Pepper to taste
Toss salad lettuce, tomatoes, onions and tortellini together. Add a little ranch dressing, toss. Add bacon and cheese, toss again. Add a little more dressing until you're happy with it. Serve.
Since Tina was bringing this, I didn't want it to get soggy. So I put the tomatoes and onions in a baggie, bacon in a baggie and tortellini in a baggie. She assembled when she got there. Enjoy.
