    Chicken or Turkey Tortellini Salad

    cup lemon juice
    4 Tbs sugar
    2 large shallots
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    cup olive oil
    2 lbs chicken tenderloins or turkey breasts
    2 (9 oz.) pkgs cheese tortellini
    1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
    3 cups leaves/mixed lettuce (spring mix is great)
    1 heart of romaine

    1 Prepare marinade and defrost chicken. Cook tortellini as package instructs. Boil until just done, do not overcook. Drain water in strainer and refridgerate.

    2 Marinade: Combine lemon juice, sugar, shallot, salt, pepper, dijon mustard and vegetable oil. Mix very well. Marinate chicken with 1/3 cup of dressing mixture for at least 1 hour. Refridgerate remaining dressing. The longer you marinate the chicken the better it is!

    3 Cut tomatoes in half. Chop 1 head of romaine lettuce in inch pieces. Place in a large serving bowl, with enough room to toss salad.

    4 Grill or pan fry chicken tenderloins. Put on plate and shred or cut into 1 inch pieces. Let cool until warm.

    5 Combine lettuce, tomatoes, tortellini, and chicken to your serving bowl. Mix your remaining dressing and begin to toss into salad until it is covered with desired amount of dressing.

    6 Serve with french bread baked your favorite way.

    I will also add parmesean cheese, bacon bits, bell peppers, walnuts, ect. just to mix it up
