Tortellini Fruit Salad

As I was finishing up putting this salad together, the hubsters came up with a concerned look on his face and shaking his head. He said I should have made a fruit salad or a pasta salad...they should not be combined. After he tried it, he changed his mind! I love all the fruit, and the cheese filled tortellini really taste out of place amongst the yummy fruit. Definitely a keeper.

Tortellini Fruit Salad
From: our Ward's Cooking Club (thanks Jami A!)

9 oz. three cheese tortellini, cooked as directed then drain and rinse w/ cold water
1 c. sliced strawberries
3/4 c. halved green grapes (red ones were cheaper this week!)
1 (11oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 c. blueberries
1/4 c. sliced almonds (opt.)
Dressing: 1/2 c. poppyseed dressing (I used Kens brand)
Combine tortellini and fruit in a bowl, add dressing right before serving and toss lightly. Refrigerate till ready to serve.
