Salmon Bacon Salad with Ravioli

About This Recipe

I have almost always used tortellini in my main dish salads when I want something more interesting than plain old pasta. I love the tender pasta and the savory cheese filling. But my husband asked if I could try to make a pasta salad using ravioli. I did and it was a howling success.

Ravioli are “meatier” than tortellini, even when they are filled with a vegetarian mixture such as roasted squash or cheese. They are more satisfying to eat, and I think they even look prettier!

Use the ravioli you can find in your supermarket in this delicious recipe. (When I made it for the picture, I added a package of tortellini too – just to be a rebel. Plus, I only had two packages of frozen ravioli and wanted to have lots of salad to last us for a few days. Don’t tell Doug!)

You could, of course, add other vegetables to this salad. Some steamed asparagus or green beans would be delicious, as would edamame or lima beans. Corn would also be good, or try some sliced zucchini. This salad is so variable!

Steps

1
Done

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the ravioli and cook according to the package directions until the pasta is tender.

2
Done

Meanwhile, put the peas in a colander in the sink. When the ravioli are done, pour over the peas to thaw them.

3
Done

In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, salad dressing, yogurt, lemon juice, and honey mustard and mix well. Add the ravioli and peas.

4
Done

Stir in the remaining ingredients until mixed. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
