Greek Tortellini Salad

So this recipe is basically greek pasta salad, but instead of bowtie or penne, you use tortellini. It is delicious. Like I said in previous posts, I love cheese, so cheese filled pasta is right up my alley. I found this recipe through Pinterest on 

Serves 8


1 package refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 large cucumber, quartered
1 cup kalamata olives, pits removed and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
For the Dressing:
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or dried basil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions. 
Meanwhile, mix the feta, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions in a large serving bowl with a spoon. 
Mix the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic clove, dried oregano or dried basil, and salt/pepper together in a measuring cup or bowl with a fork. 
Drain the tortellini and add to the serving bowl. Pour the dressing on top and mix all together with a large spoon. This can be served immediately or chilled and served cold. 
It a great leftover as well! I loved this fresh recipe. It was healthy, yummy, and easy to make. From one newbie to another, I hope you enjoy it too!
