Best Easter Recipe Ever!

Mustard-Dill Tortellini Salad Skewers RecipeSometimes preparing for Easter lunch is a little tricky.  There are a loads of recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas but for Easter there’s just not quite as much from which to choose.  I mean, what’s your main course – a southern style ham, pork loin, chicken or do you kick it up a notch and serve lamb?  I’m not exactly sure either. That’s why when I saw this versatile side that can go with just about any main course- I decided to add it to my repertoire of recipes and share with our friends. It’s a quick pasta salad recipe which again can be used with any main course and can be altered to appeal to the most finicky of palettes. This recipe is compliments of none other than Southern Living!

Hope you enjoy and if you have any Easter recipes that you’d like to share- send them to us!  Happy Easter everyone and let’s not forget the true meaning of Easter!
