Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

This salad is the best. It comes from a former co-worker of mine, who was always asked to bring it to events.

Salad Ingredients:
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 1 1/4 lb. fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
  • 2-3 heads broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • red onion, finely chopped (to taste)
Dressing Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 t cider vinegar
Cook bacon, cool, and crumble. Cook tortellini for 8-10 minutes, drain, and rinse under cool water. Mix dressing ingredients. Combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl; add dressing; toss. Serve chilled.
