Asiago Pinzati Style Tortellini Salad

Dressing:  8 oz EVOO

4 oz White Balsamic Vinegar

3 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and cracked black pepper to taste.


1 Package of Parla Asiago Tortellini

1 Pint of grape tomatoes, halved

1 8 oz. tub of fresh 1inch mozzarella balls (bocconcini), halved

3 green onions, sliced thinly

1/2 large english cucumber, sliced thinly.

Cook tortellini according to the directions on the package, drain and place in an ice water bath until cool. Then, drain again (removing any leftover ice) and place in your bowl.  Toss with EVOO to coat and hold.

Place all of the ingredients needed for the dressing in a blender and pulse a couple of times until dressing is well blended.

Place the tortellini in a bowl. Add the grape tomatoes, mozzarella balls, the green onions and the cucumber.  Season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.  Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss. This salad is wonderful for large gatherings and it holds at room temperature very well.
