To prepare dressing, combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl, and stir well with a whisk.
To prepare salad, cook tortellini in boiling water for 6 minutes. Add shrimp and carrot; cook 3 minutes. Drain well. Combine pasta mixture, tomato, peas, and onion in a large bowl; pour dressing over salad, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
I love this recipe first because it has a wonderful spring flavor, second because it looks pretty and third because it is flexible enough to serve warm or cold. The leftovers are also delicious. I often made this for spring get togethers and it always gets raves.
