Expert Tips

Meat or vegetable-filled tortellini can be substituted for the cheese-filled tortellini.

To keep the salad cool at a picnic setting, place a frozen gel pack in the bottom of a basket and cover it with a cloth napkin; set the salad bowl in the basket.

Line a pretty platter with colorful lettuce leaves. Top it with the salad and garnish with fresh herbs.
