Melissa's Cuisine: Tortellini Salad

Tortellini Salad

I've completed my series on grillin' foods, but this is a salad we really enjoy eating with our grilled items.  It's easy to make, and is the perfect side of a grilled steak or chicken breast.  You can serve it warm or cold, but we prefer it cold in the summer!
You will need:

1/8 cup olive oil
1 T. lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Parmesan cheese
1 package cheese tortellini
cherry tomatoes, quartered

1.  Boil tortellini for about 8 minutes until the noodle is soft and the filling is warm.  Drain and set aside.

2.  In a small bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic salt.

3.  Pour dressing over tortellini and stir until well distributed.

4.  Stir in cherry tomatoes.

5.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.


  1. I can see why you like it, it sounds like a perfect side to any grilled item.
