Ingredients

Garlic Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup cider or balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Salad

  • 1 package (7 ounces) cheese-filled tortellini
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups broccoli flowerets
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)

Steps

  • 1
    In tightly covered container, shake all vinaigrette ingredients.
  • 2
    Cook and drain tortellini as directed on package. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you have leftover ham, chop it and add to make a main-meal salad!
  • tip 2
    Supermarket salad bars can be a real time-saver. Rather than chopping the vegetables yourself, why not buy already-sliced carrots, broccoli and onions from the salad bar? To save more time, use 1/3 cup purchased balsamic vinaigrette dressing or another vinaigrette dressing of your choice.
  • tip 3
    For brightly colored vegetables, blanch them by immersing in boiling water for a few seconds and then plunging into ice water to stop the cooking process.
