Steak and Tortellini Salad

I may have mentioned before, but my husband is not a happy camper when he finds out that salad is the main course for dinner.  Where's the beef?  I think he is stuck in the 80's Wendy's commercial.  So this salad answers all those needs...beef, pasta and salad...all together!  Check out this Steak and Tortellini Salad!

This salad is so good because of the dressing that Tastes Better From Scratch made.  It is a yummy creamy pesto dressing!  You can grill a couple of steaks or use leftover steak pieces from a previous night's dinner.

1 pkg multi-colored, fresh tortellini
2 cooked, sliced steaks
1 bag of salad 

Creamy Pesto Dressing:
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
2 Tbs. Parmesean cheese
3 Tbs. Pesto 

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Grill steak.  Slice steak across the grain and set aside. 
For the creamy pesto dressing, mix all ingredients in a small bowl.  Top salad with steak, tortellini and dressing.

So simple and makes everyone happy...especially with that dressing!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
