Our family is constantly looking for yummy side dishes that we can add to our meals. Today, I’m sharing one of my personal favorites that we recently found. I’m all about simple these days and this recipe is just that! Being simple, doesn’t have to mean simple taste though. This Spinach and Tortellini Salad has few ingredients but is bursting with yummy flavor. Its quick and easy to put together and can be served immediately. This would be a great dish to bring to your next potluck.
I really loved the Italian dressing we used, but feel free to change that out with what you prefer. If you do use something different, please let us know. Would love to hear what worked for you.
