The Cheese Board Tortellini Salad

Share this post

The Cheese Board Tortellini Salad – Tortellini, artichokes, tomatoes, olives, parsley, tossed in a vinaigrette that gets better and better as it sits.

tortellini salad recipe

I love going to a restaurant and eating something that I love and recreating my own version at home. This tortellini salad is something similar to what they serve at The Cheese Board in my hometown of Linwood, NJ. I am not sure exactly how they make theirs, but this is pretty darn close. Mine might even be better.

I made this when I was playing around with different kinds of sweeteners. I tried using sucanat, but I did not like that it did not dissolve, so I prefer to use honey. White sugar works too. Whatever you got. You just need to add a touch of sweetness to balance the tang of the vinegar in the dressing.

This salad is really easy to make and tastes even better if you let it sit for a while.

Sometimes I add some grilled chicken or shrimp on the side. This salad reminds me of summer.

I have been making this since I was a kid. Only difference is I just get artichokes in oil and dump the whole jar in and instead of vinegar I put a tiny bit of the juice from the can of olives in I add my own parsley and done!

I love everything about this. I am betting it will be especially delicious with garden grown tomatoes. Can't wait to try it! Thanks Bree!

I just love these lovely, simple dishes. And I always appreciate how you add what worked for you, what worked better, and what didn't really at all. Thanks Bree!

Me too, they are things that I make over and over again. I try to be honest, I want to experiment, but I think that it is only fair to be honest about it.
