* Wheat Round Crackers are great for dipping into Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip. $1.79 each.
My sis-in-law (Mary) told me about a salad she really enjoys and it sounded real good. I went to my cookbooks and couldn’t find one that sounded just the same, so took a recipe I had, changed it a bit, made it, really enjoyed it and talked to her and found out it was VERY close to hers!! GREAT summer dinner salad.
*Add some cut up grilled chicken and yala….a one bowl dinner on a HOT night!
*Mary uses Italian dressing, and adds salt & pepper to taste. (Am I forgetting anything???)
spinach leaves, about 4 oz. fresh
small red onion, thinly sliced
pkg. refrigerated tortellini (8-10 oz.)
1 c. or so of cherry tomatoes, halved or left whole
6 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Cook the tortellini according to the package directions, drained and cooled. Layer the spinach, onion, tortellini, tomatoes and bacon in a bowl, top with parmesan cheese. Chill till ready to eat. Serve dressing on each individual serving ~ don’t pour dressing over the WHOLE thing, else any leftovers will get soggy. Leftovers make a GREAT lunch!!
Thanks to Mary for telling me about a great recipe!!
