Greek tortellini pasta salad is a family favorite. Quick and easy with a zesty dressing, perfect anytime of year!
This Greek tortellini pasta salad has plenty of veggies, and the homemade dressing has tons of flavor. This salad even gets better as it sits and the pasta soaks up some of that dressing. It's quick and easy and can be made ahead, and an overall crowd pleaser!
This salad is a great side dish for summer barbecues or potlucks, like my Southwestern Chicken Pasta Salad. Also goes perfectly with some of my most popular recipes.
- Easy Oven-Baked Ribs
- Grilled Tri-Tip with Onions and Peppers
- Spicy Teriyaki Grilled Steak Kebabs
- Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwich
- Jalapeno Pepper Jack Chicken Burger
This Greek dressing can totally be adjusted to your taste. I like mine with a little bit more vinegar, but you can cut that back on it or add more olive oil.
The feta cheese is perfect in this pasta salad. I love those little tangy bits, really hard not to nibble on a few before adding them to the salad.
I love using cheese tortellini pasta, it's great whether it's in hot pasta or used in a cold salad. Either way, it's delicious. Check out these delicious recipes.
