Layered Spinach Tortellini Salad

Print Friendly and PDF
I love this salad as it is so colorful.  Be sure to serve it in a deep glass bowl, so you can see the multicolored layers.  I make my own ranch dressing, but you can substitute that with your favorite brand of dressing.

Ingredients:
6 cups baby spinach leaves
2 cups red cabbage, chopped
1 pkg (9 oz) refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 bottle (8 oz) ranch salad dressing*
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
3/4-1 lb. bacon, cut, browned and drained
1/2 cup green onions, chopped

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Drain and rinse in cold water.  In a large glass bowl, layer the ingredients in the order listed above.

* I mix equal parts sour cream and mayonnaise with Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Seasoning Packet, instead of using a bottled ranch dressing.
