Antipasto Tortellini Pasta Salad Made Skinny
The perfect pasta salad for summer! It’s a great side dish for potlucks, picnics and also makes a wonderful main course meal. Particularly easy since it’s tossed with a store-bought light salad dressing. Each 1 cup serving has 173 calories and 5 grams of fat.

Shopping Tips
One of my favorite store-bought dressing is Girard’s Light Champagne Dressing.  It’s sold in most large supermarket chains in the salad dressing aisle. I found them at Von’s/Safeway.
I used Gallo reduced-fat salami. This brand and other brands are available in the luncheon meat section of the supermarket. In addition, I like Columbus Lite Italian Dry Salami and it’s gluten-free. I found it at Von’s/Safeway in the deli section.
