Three-Cheese Tortellini Salad

I often think THIS is the reason I am invited to so many cookouts ... and all this time I thought it was because of my amazing personality. Well, maybe it's both! Suggestion: if you take it to a potluck, bring copies of the recipe. You WILL be asked for it. /rayt721


1 (7 oz.) pkg. cheese tortellini
1 c. fresh broccoli flowerets
4 oz. (1 c.) cubed Cheddar cheese
1 c. sliced celery
1 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
1 (2 1/4 oz.) can sliced ripe olives,


1/2 c. mayonnaise or salad dressing
1-2 tbsp. milk
1 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh marjoram or
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram leaves
3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. lemon juice
