While cleaning out the fridge this week I found one lone package of cheese tortellini. I’ve made far too many soups and saucy pasta dishes lately so this package-o-pasta got the salad treatment!

I made a similar tortellini topped salad a few weeks ago and it was such a hit that we were destined for a remix.

This time around we’re going Greek with a boatload of fresh veggies tossed in my go-to homemade Greek dressing and sprinkled with crumbled feta cheese.

SO. MUCH. YES.

Greek Tortellini Salad with Tomatoes and Feta

This scrumptious salad is great all on it’s own, but can also be paired with your favorite soup or sandwich for a legendary lunch or dinner.

Try it with a hot and melty Grilled Cheese Pita, a tasty vegetarian Chickpea Salad Sandwich, or a piping hot bowl of Tomato Soup!

Feel free to halve the recipe if simply serving two or double it to serve a crowd! It’s crazy versatile.

You can also add sliced or chopped cucumbers to this Mediterranean style salad. I do whenever I have them on hand!

We love ours with a hearty dusting of creamy feta cheese. It’s the perfect compliment to the zesty Greek vinaigrette and totally makes the salad!

Ingredients

  • 9 oz fresh cheese tortellini
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper , diced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced banana peppers or olives (totally optional)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

EASY HOMEMADE GREEK DRESSING

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP red wine vinegar
  • 1 TBSP dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled, smashed, + minced)
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine dressing ingredients in a small mason jar and tightly secure the lid. Shake vigorously to emulsify. Dip a piece of lettuce to tase and adjust salt and pepepr, to taste. I like my dressing a bit tart and zippy (it brighens up the pasta and pairs so well with the creamy feta) but you can also sweeten it a tad if desired.

  2. Bring a small/medium pot of water to a boil and cook tortellini via package instructions. (Usually approx. 3 minutes for fresh and 4-5 min for frozen tortellini) Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine romaine, tortellini, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, optional banana pepepr or olives, and feta cheese. Love cucumber? It makes a fantastic addition to this salad!

  4. Just before serving, shake up mason jar of dressing and pour over salad. Mix well to coat and enjoy!

    I couldn’t get over the flavors and colors of this dish. The ingredient list appears long, but it is all common stuff and easy to put together.

    WHat’s the best kind of feta to get for this? I see sheep’s milk, cow’s milk and blends. Never quite sure which one to use… tysm

    • Hi Cindy! Whichever variety you like will work great. I’m a big fan of goat’s milk feta and American-made cow’s milk feta as well. I always get the brick and crumble it myself so it’s extra creamy!
