Jar Salad with Tortellini
This Jar Salad with Tortellini serves four people so you will need to ensure that you have four large mason jars (with lids!) before starting out. There is an art to assembling jar salads. My top tip is to place the dressing in the bottom of the jar so the other ingredients like lettuce don’t get soggy.
Start by cooking the tortellini according to the package directions. Once you have drained and cooled the tortellini under cold water, start assembling the salad. Begin with your favorite dressing at the bottom of the jar. Next add chopped cherry tomatoes and tortellini in that order. Add bell pepper, cheese and red onion in no particular order. Place lettuce on top and close the lid. Refrigerate until you are ready to eat.
