After Wednesday’s 4 pasta salad post was such a hit on Facebook, I decided to create a separate blog post for each recipe that was included – there’s Caprese, Chicken Caesar, Broccoli Pasta Salad, this Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad included.
This Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad is loaded with a ton of good stuff. Besides tortellini, there’s also cucumber, tomatoes, olives, radishes, red onions and some delicious feta.
What’s great about pasta salads is you can toss in whatever ingredients you like. If you’re not a fan of radishes or olives, you can totally leave them out.
And the best part? The dressing is super easy to whip up. But if you’re in a pinch or don’t feel like making your own, you can easily use your favorite storebought version instead.
This Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad also keeps well in the fridge! So it’s perfect if you’re planning to make this ahead of time for a picnic or a summer barbecue the next day.
And how amazing would this pasta salad be for Sunday meal prep? Plus leftovers would be delicious for your school or work lunchbox. Definitely saves you time and money. You can even serve this with some diced chicken to make it even more hearty and filling!
