Is it hot outside or what!? Here around Atlanta we’ve had temperatures in the upper 90′s with heat indexes in the 105-110 degree range for the past week. Those high temperatures have sparked some pretty fierce thunderstorms, too. Yesterday afternoon and evening were full of nature’s fireworks lighting up the sky!

On days like this, when it’s just too hot to cook much less eat anything heavy, it’s nice to have a few quick, easy, cool recipes to go to. And this one is a favorite of ours. It’s a layered salad that is light, refreshing and filling all at the same time. And it uses some of my favorite ingredients – those found in many Greek recipes. Even though it does use some packaged items, the tortellini for example, it’s still healthy if you make wise choices in the ones you purchase.

The only heating of the stove involved is cooking a package of tortellini. Surely we can stand to do that even in a heat wave! After that part is done, it’s simply layering ingredients into a pretty bowl.
