Unique Salads to Go with Your Favorite Soups

Pictured is the first salad and soup combination we are going to make, a cold cucumber and tomato salad with tortellini soup.


Soup and Salad

A classic combo. Pb & J, salt and pepper, Sonny and Cher, soup and salad. They just belong together!

Soup and salad have been classic combinations in diners and homes across America forever! But as much as we love a crunchy iceberg paired with Tomato, the same-old-same-old gets, well, old!

So here is a fresh, summery salad with our cheesy tortellini soup. This cucumber and tomato salad is great with a saucy soup and is so refreshing. I love it at picnics and at family events. It’s easy to make and can easily be scaled up or down depending on how many people you need to feed.
