I love a great pasta salad in the summer... something that I can prep on the weekend and eat for a quick lunch by the pool or for dinner as a side with something off the grill. I came across this recipe back in the Fall and last week was the perfect time to try it out.
Here's What You'll Need...
- Step One -
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions and then drain and rinse them with cold water.
I grabbed these tortellini from our local Kroger store and they were SO GOOD!!! I hadn't tried them before, but will definitely use them again.
- Step Two -
Slice the tomatoes in half, dice the cucumber and chop the onion.
Little helper eyes are optional ;)
- Step Three -
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
- Step Four -
Toss the vegetables and Feta cheese with the cooked tortellini.
- Step Five -
Pour the dressing over the salad and mix it together until it's all coated.
I had mine with a grilled chicken breast and it was amazing. And then I had it the next day for lunch. And dinner again that night. ;)
I'd love to try out any great summer salad recipes that y'all have - so leave them in the comments or send them to me! (firstname.lastname@example.org).
