This is a great salad that combines one of my favorite flavor combinations, blue cheese and walnuts. Accompanied by a fresh, warm roll this salad makes a great light supper.

4 teaspoons olive oil
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
8 ounces tortellini, cheese-filled - cooked and drained
4 ounces blue cheese - crumbled
