Caesar Tortellini Salad ***

This was actually really good.  Hubby hates avocado as a general rule, but he said that he couldn't taste it at all in here.  Once it's been refrigerated, the flavors all kind of blend together, and the avocado serves more as a means of adding to the creaminess than as a flavor of its own.  I refrigerated it for about 8 hours, but it was even better the next day.  I'll definitely be making it again.

3-1/2 cups frozen cheese tortellini
3 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 can (3.8 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
8 thin slices hard salami, cut into 2-inch strips

Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine tortellini and remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
Yield: 5 servings.
