Cheese Tortellini Salad

This is a nice change from Macaroni or Potato Salad! Yummy cheese filled pasta, crisp veggies & the creamy Ranch Dressing makes this a pasta dish that triumphs over the usual everyday side dish!
1 Bag of Frozen Tortellini Cheese Filled Pasta cooked according to package, drained
2 Ribs Celery Chopped
1/4 cup Red Onion Chopped
1/2 Green Pepper Chopped or Sliced
1 Carrot Peeled & cut into thin coins
1 Tomato Chopped
1 Cucumber Sliced Thin
2 Heaping TBS of Chopped Dried Vegetables found in the spice section of your grocery store
1 Cup Ranch Dressing I used Hidden Valley Buttermilk Dressing
Stir all together & chill. The only thing you might want to do to improve this salad is add 1 pound cleaned steamed shrimp that is chilled or 1 pound lump crabmeat! DELICIOUS!.
