I promise, it's yummy!

Broccoli Tortellini Salad

I know, the ingredient list is kinda odd but they taste great together! This is another one of my secret weapon recipes; I whip it out when I need a stellar potluck dish that doesn't have to stay warm. (I use my handy dandy Pampered Chef Chilzanne Bowl)


  • 6 slices bacon
  • 20 ounces fresh cheese-filled tortellini
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 3 heads fresh broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped


  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook tortellini in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar to make the dressing.
  4. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, tortellini, bacon, raisins, sunflower seeds and red onion. Pour dressing over salad, and toss.
