Tortellini Salad

This is the perfect side dish to any BBQ or Summer dinner! It is light, full of vegetables and it even better the next day after it sits for a bit!

Tortellini Salad
Recipe From Our Family Treat

1 package of tortellini
1 cup cubed hard salami
1 cup chopped asparagus (1 inch length)
2 green onions chopped
1 can large artichoke hearts diced
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley (Italian)

1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Start by bringing up a large pot of water to a boil. Chop the vegetables, and add into a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. To the boiling water add the asparagus and the pasta. Cook together until pasta is done (follow package instructions) remove and shock both the pasta and asparagus in a bowl of ice water. Add the salami, pasta, and all the vegetables to the large bowl, and toss with the dressing. Let chill for 2 hrs before service. That is it...... seems too easy... but it won't taste that way.
