A tasty salad that we enjoy at picnics and BBQs. This was the result after experimenting with some of our favorite ingredients. It can be prepared a day ahead.

How To Make

  • 1
    Combine the vinegar, garlic, mustard, and oregano in a small bowl. Add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream while whisking constantly until all the oil is incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil on the stove top.

    In a small bowl, pour enough of the boiling water over the sun-dried tomatoes to cover. Let stand for 30 minutes to rehydrate, then drain.
  • 4
    Coarsely chop the rehydrated tomatoes.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, cook the tortellini in the remaining boiling water until about 12 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
  • 6
    Trim fat off prosciutto and cut into squares.
  • 7
    Combine tomatoes, tortellini, prosciutto, garlic and drained artichoke hearts. Add vinaigrette and mix well.
