In our next recipe for the Salad Recipe Series sponsored by e-cloth, I created this Tortellini Shrimp & Asparagus Salad that is perfect left cold or at room temperature. Summer entertaining needs to be simple and easy, while at the same time pretty and elegant. 

Buy your favorite cheese tortellini and toss with asparagus and shrimp that were lightly sauteed with olive oil, garlic, dijon mustard and a little white wine and you've got a great salad that is hearty and perfect for your summer party! 

e-cloth Deep Clean Mop

This week, I mopped the floors using e-cloth deep clean mop with nothing but water and I was impressed with the results. I honestly waited for the floors to be so dingy and gross. I must admit, I was a little skeptical because I always clean the floors with water and bleach to get the clean, sparkly shine. 

e-cloth claims their products need to be used with nothing but water because of their special cloth technology and I was so happy to have the same deep clean shine and feel. What's even better is that I'm not filling up the house with the fumes and chemicals! 

How e-cloth works

Simplify Your Cleaning: An e-cloth and water is all you need to clean your entire home! It's time to say goodbye to wet floor wipes, dry floor wipes, window cleaners, dust spray, dusting kit, kitchen cleaners, stainless steel cleaners, bathroom cleaners, disposable cleaning wipes, other traditional cleaning chemicals, paper towels, homemade cleaning products, products containing nanosilver and housekeeping services.

An e-cloth is not just another microfiber cloth. Advanced fiber technology and superior chemistry are used in the manufacturing of these cloths to produce amazing results. 

It is e-cloth's fiber composition, fiber size, fiber processing and density of cloth that allows e-cloth to achieve extraordinary cleaning and drying, outperforming all other cleaning cloths and cleaning methods.

Fiber Composition For the most part, an e-cloth is made from polyester and polyamide (nylon). It is the chemical properties of these materials that naturally draw things into the fibers as you clean.  We pride ourselves on using highest quality raw materials in the world are used to make the micro-size polyester and polyamide fibers.

Fiber Size Unlike ordinary cloths, e-cloth fibers are designed and fabricated to provide maximum cleaning and drying power. Primarily made from polyester and polyamide, the tiny e-cloth fibers are 1,000 times finer than cotton fibers or 1/200th the diameter of a human hair. The fibers are the smallest in the world that can be made by man.

Fiber Processing During production, polyester fibers are split into eight pie-shape filaments (seen above) and polyamide fibers are split into an axle with eight spokes. The polyester pie shape filaments are combined with the polyamide to form a fiber that is 1/200th of a human hair diameter.

Fiber Density Each e-cloth is fabricated to have as many as 3.1 million fiber strands per square inch of cloth. Nearly 500 million fiber strands are in each cloth.  e-cloth's filaments are so small and so strong; using just water they break up, lift, lock in, and clean deep down into the tiniest grooves and crevices. Dust, grease, oils, grime, dirt and bacteria are quickly and easily removed and locked away deep inside the fibers until the cloths are rinsed or washed.

Surfaces are cleaned so effectively that there is nowhere left for bacteria to grow. Surfaces are left polished and totally smear and lint free. e-cloths rapidly absorb 7 times their weight in water.

In addition, scientific research carried out by world renowned Silliker Group, has proven that e-cloths also remove over 99% of bacteria.

  • 9 oz package cheese tortellini, I used Buitoni
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onions
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound raw medium shrimp, deveined
  • 1 bunch asparagus, chopped
  • 1/4 cup your favorite white wine
  • 3 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes

Cook the tortellini as it says on the package instructions, drain and set aside. 

Heat a saute pan to medium-heat with olive oil. Saute the onions and garlic until the onions have become tender. Add the dijon mustard and with a wooden spoon, mix with the onions and garlic, scraping the bottom of the pan. 

Then, add the shrimp and asparagus. Toss together with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Add white wine and scrape the bottom of the pan. Then, cover for about 2 minutes. 

Simmer until shrimp are pink and turn heat off and let cool.

In a salad bowl, add the salad greens and tortellini and toss together with the shrimp and tortellini. Top with cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
