Summer favorite--Chicken Tortellini Salad

{printable version}

I'm not sure where I first found this recipe, maybe at
It's been a summer favorite ever since.  Easy to put together, once you buy the ingredients.  I like to use chopped chicken from a rotisserie chicken and I love the addition of dilled Havarti.

1/2 lb. green beans, trimmed, cut into 2" pieces
9 oz. pkg. refrigerated cheese tortellini
2 cups cooked chopped chicken
1/2 cup minced red onion
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1 cup Havarti cheese cubes
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves


Bring water to a boil in a heavy stockpot.
Add beans and cook for 3 minutes.
Add tortellini and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes longer.
Drain well.
Combine in large bowl with remaining ingredients and toss gently to coat.
6 servings
