Spinach Salad with Whole-Wheat Tortellini, Dried Cranberries, Apples, and Feta

My husband has been out of town on rotation for the past 3 weeks, so I've been a little  bit more low key on cooking meals. Conveniently, I saw this recipe here on Two Peas and Their Pod and knew I had to try it. Maria has TONS of great recipes on her blog, and it was just what I was looking for in an easy supper (read: I won't be eating leftovers for 2 of the 4 weeks)!

All that I can tell you is that this salad is good enough that I've had it 3 times in the past week! This past time I even had to swap in a raspberry vinaigrette for the balsamic because I was out, and it was still great! I did adapt the recipe a little bit by leaving the almonds out. I am generally not too crazy about nuts in my food. They are okay plain, but I'd rather not have them in my salads, brownies, etc.
