For the salad:

For the dressing:


  1. Liberally rub chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Preheat a grill to medium heat and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Add chicken and cook until completely done, about 5 – 6 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and slice into thin pieces.
  2. While chicken cooks, bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add tortellini and cook for about 8 minutes, or until they are fully cooked (they’ll float to the top). Rinse.
  3. In a large salad bowl, mix the tortellini with the chicken. Add tomatoes, onion and sliced cheese.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a shallow bowl. Pour over salad and stir in fresh basil.
