This recipe is just as good without the chicken, or with other veggies subbed for the chicken.
1 (19-oz.) package frozen cheese tortellini
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon herbes de Provence
1/4 cup canola oil
Salt to taste
1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and place in large bowl. Stir in chicken and next 5 ingredients.
2. Whisk together mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, and herbes de Provence. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until smooth. Pour over tortellini mixture, tossing to coat. Stir in salt to taste. Cover and chill at least 25 minutes. Garnish, if desired.
