Tortellini and Tomatoes Salad

Tortellini and Tomatoes Salad

Some years back paging the thin, worn pages of a bent magazine I came upon an appetizingly delight of a photo, something of a Tortellini with Tomatoes Salad then made a quick mental note on the colorfully combined ingredients perfect for many occasions ahead. That was many years ago with many preparations since.

One week, early on in the first fall collegiate sports season, of my youngest, Alex the Athlete, when fresh tomatoes were still plentiful and I was still learning the ropes and ins and outs of the weekly Team Family Tailgates after every match, I prepared this longtime crowd pleaser. It was an immediate Tailgate Winner!

That was four years ago now and last week I prepared my final Tortellini Salad with Tomato and Garlic Dressing for the Team Family Tailgate. Nothing remained but a couple bits of the rubbed tomatoes once dressing the dish.

I should like to share this recipe with those parents returning and future parents privileged enough to be a part of our team, including learning the ropes and the ins and outs on coordinating a fine Team Family Tailgate.

With Alex graduating after next semester, it will be the first time in about fifteen years that I will have a free weekend to go to a salon rather than a field or court event.

But then you never know when I will sometime again, some early fall, be making a return visit to a match and Team Family Tailgate, cheering the team, greeting old friends, meeting those new, alongside sharing an adorned tray of Tortellini and Tomatoes Salad. Go Team.
