Make Ahead Tortellini Salad (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Sat Mar 28, 2009 12:13 am

I took this to our potluck dinner at church on Wednesday night...this salad is sooooooooooo good and easy to make up. You can make it up early in the day or even the day before (which is what I did), then it will be already when you need it.


9 oz pkg refrigerated cheese tortellini
9 oz pkg refrigerated spinach tortellini
1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2" pieces
1 small red onion, diced
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, diced
1 cup quartered grape tomatoes

1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbs balsamic vingegar
2 tbs white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add tortellini and cook 3 min. add beans and continue cooking until tortellini is tender. Drain, rinse under cool water. Drain well. Place in serving bowl. Stir in onion, olives and tomatoes.
2. DRESSING---In a jar or plastic container with tight fitting lid, combine oil and garlic. Let stand 10 min. then add both vinegars, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Shake well. Stir half into tortellini salad.
3. Cover salad with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerate 30 min. before serving, stir in remaining dressing, if needed and serve. MAKES 12 SERVINGS OF SALAD.*
