Greek Tortellini Salad

Last week while cleaning out the fridge, I realized that I had about 100 different vegetables that were about to go bad. A salad is a great way to clean out the fridge, but I had something a little more specific in mind. I’m a big fan of Greek flavors and a pasta salad seemed like the right choice.

This Greek Tortellini Salad is light and fresh, making it the perfect side dish to bring to spring and summer parties! I love using tortellini in cold pasta salads. The cheesy filling adds nice flavor and texture and it’s also a bit more filling for the tummy!

I opted for black olives which I know really aren’t Greek compared to kalamata olives, but I was worried that kalamata olives were too salty and might overpower this pasta salad. Crunchy cucumber, grape tomatoes, and crumbled feta are also mixed in. The dressing is a simple lemony vinaigrette. This pasta salad is super simple, but full of fresh flavors!

You can add diced chicken to make this even more filling and substantial.
