Antipasto Tortellini Salad

Antipasto Tortellini Salad

Every Italian loves a big ole platter of antipasto! With that said, I am always looking for fun ways to work in all of my favorite antipasto goodies into different dishes like this incredible Antipasto Tortellini Salad! This absolutely makes for a perfect summer pasta salad with all those great colors, textures and flavors. This dish was a huge hit with my family and I hope you all love it too!

So heres whats in this beauty of a side dish…  Cheese tortellini, marinated artichoke hearts, Sicilian olives, cherry tomatoes, marinated sun dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, pepperoni, salami and lots of my garden fresh basil. You get a little salty, a little sweet, chewy, creamy and all delicious!! The dressing is really simple, I used all the olive oil that the sun dried tomatoes were marinated in, its already perfect. I added enough olive oil at the end to just keep it from being on the dry side. A little salt and pepper to taste and you’ve got yourself a great and really simple side dish perfect for your next BBQ.
