Greek Tortellini Salad

I love this Greek Tortellini Salad. Not only is it easy to make, but it is packed with fresh and delicious flavors. As with most pasta salads, letting this chill in the fridge for at least two hours before serving will boost the flavor even more. Sometimes I even make it the night before. You can also totally customize it by adding whatever toppings you want, and leaving out anything you’re not crazy about.

Ingredients

  • Tortellini – I like to buy the kind from the refrigerated section. I think it tastes more fresh and the cheese is better than the frozen or dry kinds.
  • Greek Dressing – You could buy pre-made Greek Dressing, but it is so easy to make your own. This dressing is so yummy! It has olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, lemon juice, garlic powder, and oregano. I like to add lots of salt and pepper as well.
  • Topping Ideas (Use as many or as little as you want. Make it your own!) – grape tomatoes, Kalamata olives, cucumbers, red onion, garbanzo beans, banana peppers, crumbled feta (the tomato basil flavored feta is especially good), artichoke hearts, and sliced grilled chicken.

    I love Greek flavors but haven’t thought to marry them with tortellini. This turned out really delicious! I’ll be doing this more often!

    This salad recipe is a keeper! I made it today, and it turned out so delicious! I am used to making Italian salads missing Greek cuisine. Thanks for reminding me to dig deeper into its recipes. 🙂
