Mediterranean Tortellini Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

I found this recipe on Joanne Eats Well With Others (via Pinterest) which was adapted from Just a Taste. This is a really straightforward, good tortellini salad, served warm or cold. Yum!

Salad:
1 lb tortellini
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 red bell pepper
4 oz feta cheese
1 thinly sliced red onion

Dressing:
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp oregano, dried
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the tortellini according to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, place the onions in a bowl of cold water to get rid of some of the bite.
  3. Drain after 5 minutes.
  4. When the tortellini is done cooking, toss together the onion slices, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, feta cheese, and tortellini.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, oregano, and red pepper flakes.
  6. Slowly pour in the olive oil and whisk to combine.
  7. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  8. Pour the dressing over the tortellini salad and toss to combine.
  9. Serve warm or at room temperature.
