Tortellini Salad

This was the salad I made over the weekend when Tawni came to town.  I had lots of requests for the recipe, so here you go!


1 package of cheese tortellini, cooked, drained and cooled
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 cup cherry tomoatoes, halved
1/4 cup red onion, chopped   
1/2 cup mozzerella cheese, cubed
1/2 cup salami, sliced thinly

While tortellini is cooking (follow directions on package-but make sure not to over cook your pasta), chop all your ingredients.   When pasta has cooled, combine. 

6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
2 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoon dried basil
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper

Combine ingredients and mix well. Pour over salad. The longer the salad marinates in the dressing, the better! Enjoy!
