A hearty cold lunch (my husband's favorite), or a great potluck dish, this salad is very versatile.

Cook rice according to box directions, and cook tortellini to "al dente" state. Chill. Mix tomato tapenade, vinegar, and mayonnaise until well blended. Cut cooked, cold sirloin burgers into cubes or small chunks. Add everything together in a large bowl including peas and peppers. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, but gently. Chill for a few hours before serving.
