                         -----Salad Makings-----
    1      Pkg           Cheese Tortellini
    1      Can           Artichoke Hearts
    1      Carrot        Thinly Sliced
                         Broccoli Florets -- (or asparagus)
    1                    Red Onion -- sliced into strips
    3                    Green Onions -- sliced thinly
                         Parmesan Cheese
                         -----Dressing-----
    1      clove         Garlic
                         Salt And Pepper
    1      tsp           Mustard
      1/3  C             Balsamic Vinegar
      2/3  C             Olive Oil
                         Basil
 
 Cook the tortellini according to package directions.  Drain and rinse the
 artichoke hearts and cut them into quarters.  Add the remaining salad
 makings (except the parmesan) and toss with the dressing.  Give it a
 generous sprinkling of parmesan and refrigerate.  You might want to be a
 little easy on the salt in the dressing because of the parmesan and the
 cheese in the tortellini.

 NOTES : I often take this on picnics because it keeps fairly well since it
 has no mayonnaise.
