Broccoli And Tortellini Salad

Pork, Salads

  • Serves 6 as main dish, 12 as side dish.


  • 12 oz bacon, cooked crispy (reserve 1/3 for top)
  • 20 oz fresh or frozen cheese tortellini (tri-color is great)
  • 1 C mayonnaise
  • 1/3 C white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 heads fresh broccoli, stems removed, florets cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 C raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1 C sunflower seeds
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • Ground pepper, to taste


Cook bacon until crisp; drain, crumble, and set aside. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook tortellini in boiling, salted water according to package directions, or for about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.

In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar to make the dressing. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, tortellini, bacon (reserve a small amount for top), raisins or dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, and onion. Pour dressing over salad and toss; ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle top with reserved bacon right before serving. Serve at room temperature, or chill for an hour in the refrigerator.
