Tortellini Salad

Super YUMMY and easy Tortellini Salad filled with tortellini, salad, ranch, tomatoes and bacon bits - perfect for summer time!

My family gets together for dinner every Sunday. My mom always makes the main dish and then whoever was coming that week would get an assignment whether it be a side dish, salad or dessert. Over the years each kid has kind of become known for certain dishes and usually gets the same assignment quite often depending on the kind of meal (Italian, Mexican, etc). One dish my little sister always does is Fried Zucchini. I almost always did desserts. And my older sister always does one of two salads she’s famous for – Ramen Noodle Salad and Tortellini Salad. They are both recipes the entire family loves so we have them quite often. When I first had this salad years and years ago I was a bit skeptical on how it would taste, but I absolutely love it. The Tortellini is the perfect ingredient for this salad making it a favorite for everyone. I’ve brought this to a few functions and I’ve never come home with any leftovers making it quite the hit.

This Salad is perfect in the summer time!

MY OTHER RECIPES

We LOVE serving this salad with an Italian meal, although it really goes great with anything!

Also, in case you’ve never used Tortellini, it can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. I didn’t know that the first time I made this and spent quite awhile looking for it – lol! Hope that helps. 🙂

Looks like the instructions are a little off! #1 should be #3!
Ranch dressing & bacon should be on last!
