Layered Tortellini and Pesto Chicken Salad

This recipe is actually from my friend Brenda, who brought it to me when I broke my leg, it lasted all week for lunches and is such a beautiful salad to bring to potluck things!

 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.

Looks yummy, Jamie. I'm glad your Baptism went well (saw pictures at Christine's). Sweetie Pie looked precious.
