Sharing our very favorite Cold Tortellini Salad Recipe with you today! This is so good! It is always requested at our Christmas Eve Party and I am happy to volunteer to make it. It is super easy to make and tastes so delicious! I forgot to share this with you and saw the photos when I was looking for a different set of photos and now I want some! But I thought I would share it with you so you can add it to your favorite recipes too!
This recipe was introduced to us several years ago by my sister-in-law and we have loved it ever since! Have you ever tried Tortellini Salad? One of the things I love about this salad is that it is so easy to add in items that YOU are partial too. You can substitute some of the ingredients for others that meets your tastes more. Now…we usually always add broccoli to this recipe (which is an optional ingredient)…we just happened to be out and it was Christmas Eve…and well you know how that goes. There was no way I was going to run to the store for broccoli! And it still tasted great!
Cold Tortellini Salad
8 oz. Spinach Tortellini (with cheese filling)
1 cup Broccoli Flowerettes, raw (optional)
4 oz. Parmesan Cheese, grated
1-6 oz. jar marinated Artichoke hearts (optional)
1-6 oz. can pitted Black Olives, drained (optional)
1-8 oz. can Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained (optional)
1-8 oz. can Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained (optional)
1 Bermuda Onion (red), diced
16 oz. (or less) Creamy Italian Dressing
24 Cherry Tomatoes, halved
¼ pound Salami, sliced (we like Summer Sausage from Hickory Farms)
- In a large saucepan cook tortellini according the directions on the package. Drain well and cover with cold water.
- In a separate bowl, add all the ingredients together (except for the tomatoes and salami) including all the optional ingredients you want included. We usually add all of them if we have them.
- Drain the water off of the tortellini and add to the other ingredients. Mix together carefully.
- Let the salad marinate in the dressing for at least 6 hours while refrigerated. Just before serving add the tomatoes and the salami.
