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.

This should be refrigerated and served cold, correct? I am making it for a potluck at work and wanted to make sure.
Thanks!

Monique

Made this tonight it turned out wonderful thank you for sharing. I did change the dressing just because I didn’t have Italian dressing. I used an olive oil dressing it worked great.

    Lil' Luna

    Sounds perfect!! I’m glad you liked it! Thanks so much!

Michelle

We do this with bottled Asian sesame dressing and add crunchy rice noodles and lots of fresh spinach. Love your Italian version, which makes more sense with the tortellini- LOL! I Can’t wait to try your version – yum!
