Ingredients

  • 1 pound cheese tortellini fresh or frozen
  • 1 16 oz bottle poppyseed dressing
  • 1 15 oz can Libby's Peach Slices, in juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked ham diced into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 16 oz block cheese diced into small chunks (or cubes)
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce

Instructions

  • Prepare cheese tortellini according to package directions.
  • Drain tortellini and rinse with cool water just to cool it off slightly.
  • In a bowl or a mason jar, combine poppyseed dressing with 4 tbsp. of the juice from the can of peach slices. Then drain the rest of the juice from the peaches. If preferred, slice the peaches in thirds to make them more bite-sized.
  • Stir dressing together well. Or if you are using a mason jar, screw the lid on and give it a good shake.
  • In a large bowl, combine cooked tortellini, diced ham, cubed cheese and sliced peaches.
  • Then pour poppyseed dressing over salad. Give it all a good stir.
  • Finally, stir in chopped lettuce and gently stir.
  • Serve immediately. Or cover with plastic wrap and pop into the fridge to serve within 24 hours.
  • Serve it up!
