I don’t know about you, but when the summertime heat rolls around, turning on the oven to make dinner is about the last thing I want to do. So, we find ourselves eating lots of salads. Here’s a favorite, that is sure to be a hit with everyone. If you buy the pre-cooked bacon crumbles (like I do) then there really is no “cooking” involved. Add some chicken, if ¬†you like, but it’s really pretty filling as it is. Enjoy!

Layered Spinach Tortellini Salad
1 (9 ounce) package uncooked cheese tortellini
2 cups shredded red cabbage
6 cups torn spinach leaves
1 (8 ounce) bottle Ranch dressing
8 slices cooked, crumbled bacon
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup sliced green onion

Cook tortellini per package directions. Drain & rinse in cold water. In a large bowl (a clear bowl makes a pretty sight), layer cabbage, spinach, tortellini, tomatoes, green onions & bacon. Pour dressing evenly over top. Refrigerate until serving time & toss immediately before.
