1/2tspchopped fresh parsley or 1/4 tsp dried parsley(optional)
Bring a medium-large pot to boil over high heat and cook tortellini per package instructions, approx 4-6 mins. TIP: start with a rolling boil on high, add pasta, then decrease heat to medium-low simmer to prevent pasta breakage.
While your pasta cooks, whisk together your dressing by combining the juice of 1 lemon plus remaining ingredients and whisk until well combined. You can also add it to a mason jar and shake well.
Once tortellini is tender and al-dente, strain in a colander and rinse briefly with cold water to chill the pasta. Pour into a large bowl and add chopped tomato, cucumber, and bell pepper along with sliced onion.
Stir or shake dressing well and pour the dressing over your salad.
