1/3
cup olive oil
3
tablespoons red wine vinegar
1
teaspoon lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
1/4
teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1
package (9 oz) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1
cup sliced carrots
1 1/2
cups frozen cut green beans
2
tablespoons sliced green onions (2 medium)

Directions

  • 1 In jar with tight-fitting lid, combine all Dressing ingredients; shake well. Set aside.
  • 2 Cook tortellini, carrots and green beans as directed on tortellini package until tortellini are tender and vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain; return to saucepan. Cover with cold water; let stand 5 minutes. Drain well.

Tips  

Meat or vegetable-filled tortellini can be substituted for the cheese-filled tortellini.

To keep the salad cool at a picnic setting, place a frozen gel pack in the bottom of a basket and cover it with a cloth napkin; set the salad bowl in the basket.

Line a pretty platter with colorful lettuce leaves. Top it with the salad and garnish with fresh herbs.
