 Layer in order given:
 5 cups torn romaine lettuce
 1 1/2 cups julienne carrots
 2 cups cooked/grilled chicken
1 cup thawed frozen peas
 1 pkg tortellini, cooked
 1 red bell pepper, chopped

 Dressing: 1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise 1/2 cup basil pesto 1/4 cup buttermilk For Sweetie Pie's Baptism, I did make a little extra, more peppers and peas and doubled the dressing to make sure there was enough.

New Year's Cheese Ball

This recipe I got from my MIL and it is actually called "Terry's Cheese Ball". I have no idea who Terry is and my husband has no idea, so I'm going to call it "New Year's Cheese Ball" because we make it every New Years Eve! It tastes great and has so few ingredients that it is SO easy to make!
New Year's Cheese Ball
2- 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup black olives (sliced or chopped)
Mix above well, form into a ball and roll in a mixture of
1/3 cup chopped walnuts and
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
*This tastes great with Triscuits!
