California Layered Salad by The Weekend Gourmet
Recipe type: Salad
An amazing layered salad!!
  • 4 oz. mixed baby greens
  • ¾ cup defrosted frozen corn kernels
  • 9 oz. package fresh cheese tortellini, cooked and cooled
  • Vinaigrette of choice
  • 2 small avocados, diced
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Seasoning of choice, I used Epicure Three Onion Dip Mix
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • 4 slices crispy cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1-2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup blue cheese or feta, crumbled
  • ½ cup small cubed cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup finely diced purple or green onion
  1. In a glass bowl place the greens in the bottom, followed by the corn and then the tortellini. Drizzle your favorite vinaigrette over the tortellini. Top with the avocado, putting more towards the outside so you can see it on the outside of the dish. Sprinkle the avocado with lime juice and your seasoning of choice. Spread the ranch dressing over the avocados. Top with the bacon, tomatoes, cheeses and onion.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Toss just before serving!!
