    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have made this many times to serve to guests in the summer season, it is delicious! You can adjust all amounts to taste and double the recipe to serve more than six. Plan ahead the tortellini needs to chill in the dressing for a minumum of 4 hours or up to 24 hours. Don't be tempted to use more than 1 teaspoon (or less) of fresh garlic, or the garlic flavor will overpower the salad, you can use garlic powder in place of fresh, if you are not a garlic-lover then omit completely, this dressing is good even without the garlic! If you want to serve more dressing on the side, then prepare two separate dressings and use one to marinate the tortellini in and one to serve on the side.

      I made this salad for Thanksgiving this year. It was a bigger hit than I thought it would be with the averse to eating green crowd that my family is. The addition that I made because I like Greek food and I just don't think it is complete without kalamata olives. I was surprised by the quantity that this makes. I was thankful for the suggestion of serving on a platter because it was much more pleasing to see that ingredients on full display. Thank you to the chef!

      This is a wonderful salad! I used tri-color tortellini, and orange cherry tomatoes from my garden, so the mix of colors on the platter was beautiful. The dressing was just what I was looking for, a little tangy from the vinegar and lemon, a little garlicky, and well flavored from the herbs. It looked like a lot at first, but once the pasta had marinated in it overnight, the quantity was perfect. I'll definitely be making this one again. Thanks so much for sharing!
