Tortellini Chicken Salad

  • Serves 8
  • Easy

About This Recipe

You can make a main dish salad out of just about anything. I myself like to dream up new combinations using ingredients I have around the house. In the fridge, obviously.

I always have frozen cooked chicken, tortellini, frozen peas, mustard, mayo, and lettuce on hand. And usually some type of fresh veggie, most often bell peppers, zucchini, and green beans.

So this salad was born. It’s easy to make, full of flavor, and healthy too.

Steps

1
Done

In a large bowl combine the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, and salad dressing and mix well.

2
Done

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the tortellini according to package directions until tender.

3
Done

Meanwhile, put the peas into a colander in the sink. When the tortellini is done, drain over the peas. Add to the dressing in the bowl.

4
Done

Stir in the chicken and all of the veggies.

5
Done

Cover and chill the salad for a few hours before serving.
