SOURCE: Tina Eisenhart

I got this recipe from my friend Tina and it is out of this world good!!! It has become a favorite at potlucks.

Tina's Broccoli Tortellini Salad

This is how i made it , you can use what you want to as I make it low fat and low calorie.

6 tablespoons of Hormel bacon bit
1 Bag of frozen Cheese tortellini (I've used frozen ravioli as well, works fine)
1/2 cup reduced fat Miracle Whip
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 bag(12 oz) Broccoli slaw ( or can use chopped fresh or frozen broccoli)
1 cup raisins
1 cup of roasted, unsalted Sunflower seeds
1 red onion finely chopped.

1. Cook frozen cheese tortellini as directed on package
2. in a small bowl mix together miracle whip and vinegar to make the dressing.
3. In a large bowl combine broccoli, tortellini, bacon, raisins, seeds and onion.
4. Pour dressing over and toss.
5. Refrigerate overnight. I put it in a good container like tupperware or a tight fitting jar and store it upside down as then the dressing does not just settle to the bottom.
