Prep Time30 mins
Total Time30 mins
- 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
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!
