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!
