Cold Tortellini Salad

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
4 cups fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
14oz can or jar artichoke hearts, rinsed and chopped
7oz jar roasted red peppers, rinsed and chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup olives, sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Dressing Ingredients:
2 medium tomatoes, halved and seeded
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. virgin olive oil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil on the stove top. In a small bowl, pour enough of the boiling water over the sun-dried tomatoes to cover. Let stand for 30 minutes to rehydrate, then drain. Coarsely chop the tomatoes.

Meanwhile, cook the tortellini in the remaining boiling water until firmly cooked. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.

To prepare the dressing, rub the tomato halves over the coarse side of a grater above a small bowl until only the skins remain, then discard the skins. Add the red wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano, minced garlic, and seasonings to the juiced tomatoes and whisk until well blended. Pour the dressing into a jar and seal. You may refrigerate the dressing for about 3 days.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the rehydrated tomatoes, cooked tortellini, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, scallions, cherry tomatoes, olives and basil. Add salad dressing and toss to cover. Chill before serving.
