Italian Tortellini Salad

Italian Tortellini Salad

Ok, this is a bit of a cheater recipe because I didn’t make tortellini from scratch. BUT nevertheless it’s that type of a quick, out-of-the-door meal that takes a few minutes to make and is soooo tasty and satisfying! 

To make this simple salad all you have to do is get a few ingredients and mix them all together in a big bowl:

To balance the texture and taste of tortellini I added as many good fresh colorful veggies as I could think of (that will go well with the rest of the ingredients, of course). You could substitute some ingredients if you’d like but keep in mind it will change the taste of the salad. I would suggest if you don’t like olives, for example, (like my husband) then just don’t add them. 

Ready for a delicious easiest summer salad? 😉
