Tortellini Salad

I love pasta salads of any kind! But Tortellini Salad is one of our all-time favorites!

You can add pretty much anything into a pasta salad… ham and pineapple for an amazing Hawaiian Pasta Salad, cheddar & dill pickles in Dill Pickle Pasta Salad and even Creamy Cucumber Pasta Salad! This Greek Tortellini Salad is another take on our favorite Easy Greek Pasta Salad and loaded cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, onions and of course feta cheese!

How to Make Tortellini Salad

This is a cold tortellini pasta salad that starts with fresh cheese filled tortellini. I love to use grape or cherry tomatoes in this recipe because they’re beautiful and just pack such a punch of flavor.  Any tomato will work in this recipe, you’ll want to make sure you drain the seeds if using a larger variety.

To make this recipe extra quick you can purchase feta that is already crumbled and I use a premade greek style dressing.  I do make a Greek Pasta Salad with a homemade dressing too, if you prefer homemade you can certainly make your own. You’ll want to add a little bit of extra dressing to this tortellini salad as some of the dressing will soak into the pasta while it sits.

Quick Tip for This Greek Tortellini Salad

While I do love onions, they tend to have a strong flavor and can easily overpower this tortellini pasta salad.  I usually chop the onion first when making a recipe and soak it in cold water with a pinch of salt to take a little bit of the bite out.  While this is completely optional, this just makes it a little bit milder in flavor and my kids prefer it that way.

Once made, this tortellini salad will last up to 3 days in the fridge, making it the perfect lunch dish!

  1. This is just awesome! I was looking for a different type of pasta salad and found this. I followed directions and can’t say enough good about it! Thank you!5 stars

  2. I made this for my lunch for my work week. I added a can of chopped artichokes. So good and filling!!!5 stars

  3. I love this light salad. It is a great meatless dish, however I do plan on adding some grilled chicken and grilled shrimp on my next two times I make this.5 stars

  4. Oh, this looks fabulous!! I love the colors and the flavors of this salad! I could eat this salad all summer long -YUM!5 stars

  5. I made this last week and hubby already wanting me to make it again today! I happened to have some fresh parsley so I added about 2 tbsp of it diced. Today I don’t have the grape tomatoes but will make it anyway. Love this salad!5 stars

  6. I don’t have any bell peppers or fresh tomatoes (but every kind of canned). Any ideas for substitutions?

  7. I have made this twice in 5 days. I made it for my family reunion and my team at work. It was delicious. I used frozen cheese tortellini instead of fresh. I bought a big 64oz. bag at Sams Club for $9.00. But I went back a month later for another bag and they stopped carrying it. So at GFS (Gordon Food Service) I found, I believe, a 42oz bag for $11.00. The tortellini was excellent.  If you make this, you will not be disappointed. 5 stars

    1. Personally, I think pasta salad is better the second day as the flavors have had time to mingle together.

  8. I am on my second time making this. It is so yummy. This time I am deciding to add some grilled chicken. The store I went to didn’t have any greek dressing so I am using Italian. So a combination of different countries lol

  9. I haven’t tried bell peppers in my Greek tortellini salad yet. Good idea, it adds even more vegetables!
    I make my dressing this way
    ◾1 T red wine vinegar
    ◾1/2 t pepper
    ◾1 t salt
    ◾2 T olive oil
    ◾1 t oregano

  10. This looks like a fabulous summer lunch. Pasta salads were always a favourite of mine growing up.

  11. I love tortellini salad and greek salad but never thought of combining them. Love the idea, perfect for lunch or picnic.

  12. Great pictures! That looks so tasty. I love pasta salads too, and I love Greek salads, so I know I’ll love this combination of the two.
