Who knew a little rabbit food could go a long way ?

Its hot outside, and you just don't feel like a 'hot' meal- a salad sounds good, right ? I love meal salads- maybe even with a side of garlic bread. My hubby always wonders where the rest of the meal is - maybe thats a man thing ! This is a meal salad i fix frequently (minus the purple onions- for my onion hating hubby!)

Caesar Tortellini Salad:
you'll need:
 1 - 9oz. package of refrigerated or frozen tortellini
 2 cups cherry tomatoes
 1/2 cup chopped purple onions
 1/2 cup sliced black olives
 1/4 cup refridgerated Parmesan cheese
 1/2 tsp. pepper
 1 medium cucumber - thinly sliced
 3/4 cup light Caesar salad dressing
 8 cups of shredded romaine lettuce (about 1 head)

here's what you do :
 *Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Combine pasta , tomatoes, and the next 6 ingredients; toss well. Cover & chill thoroughly. Serve over lettuce.

YUM ! Enjoy- and stay cool in this heat :-)
