Tortellini Salad

This one's great for hot summer evenings--make it early, throw it in the fridge, and enjoy a chilled meal later on when you're too hot to cook...

Tortellini Pasta Salad
20 oz. fresh cheese tortellini, cooked and drained
¼ cup minced fresh parsley
¼ lb. salami or ham, cubed
¼ lb. havarti, mozzarella or swiss cheese, cubed
1 red or green pepper, chopped
½ cup black olives, sliced
2 green onions sliced

Dressing:
3 T red wine vinegar
¼ tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp Dijon mustard
½ cup olive oil
¼ tsp salt

Blend dressing ingredients in food processor or blender till well-mixed. Then combine ingredients and toss with dressing. Let chill for at least 2-3 hours.
