Thread: Greek Tortellini Salad

  1. #1

    Greek Tortellini Salad

    I had an opened bag of dried cheese tortellini hanging out in my pantry, way toooo long and i wanted to finally use it up. So after a quick look on my computer, I saw this recipe. I had in my file for years, but unfortunately I didn't note where I found the recipe.

    I winged the amounts/tweaked the ingredients a bit/used less oil/used dry tortellini/omitted the olives (since soooo not a fan).

    And, the tortellini is finished. I might try again with using just a pasta like penne.

    Greek Style Tortellini Salad

    Hearty enough to serve as the main course...

    16 oz fresh cheese-filled tortellini
    ¼ cup olive oil
    2 tsp grated lemon zest, minced
    ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
    2 Tbs ground walnuts
    1 Tbs honey
    1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 small red onion, julienned
    ½ cup sliced black olives
    ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
    1 large boneless chicken breast half, cooked and sliced into thin strips

    1 Cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain and cool under cool water. Refrigerate until chilled.

    2 Prepare dressing in a small bowl by whisking together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice walnuts and honey. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    3 Toss chilled pasta in large salad bowl with chilled dressing. Add vegetables, cheese and chicken and toss together well.

    4 Serve cold.
