Tortellini Salad

In the summer, I pretty much just want cold salads in every form and fashion.  This one is a keeper.  The best way I can sell it is...my mom doesn't like pasta salads and she really liked this one.  I wish I should express the significance of that statement!
So...trust me and try it.

Tortellini Salad
Ingredients:  1 lb fresh cheese tortellini (prepared according to package instructions and drained), 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil, 2 T. balsamic vinegar, kosher salt (to taste), black pepper (to taste), 3/4 c. salami (chopped) 1/2 c. baby spinach, 1/2 c. oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (drained and chopped), 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan
Instructions:
1.  Cook tortellini according to pkg instructions and drain.
2.  Make dressing:  Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.  Pour over cooked tortellini.
3.  Add salami, spinach, sun-dried tomato, and  toss.  Top with Parmesan cheese.  You can eat warm, or chill it for later.
*Serves 4
