Blueberry & Tortellini Fruit Salad

Having picked up fresh blueberries at Wegmans, decided to make this salad as a side to go with the Wegmans roasted chicken (a lemon pepper & a barbecued) that we also purchased.

Sue Mackay of Grindstone Farm submitted this recipe to the Post-Standard.

1/2 cup low-fat poppy seed dressing
1 9-ounce package three-cheese tortellini
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 11-ounce can Mandarin orange segments, drained
3/4 cup green grapes
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Cook pasta according to directions, drain.

In large bowl add pasta and salad ingredients, pour dressing over it all and toss lightly.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
