  • 4 oz tortellini thawed, we used cheese-stuffed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp traditional Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 oz green bell pepper chopped
  • 4 oz cherry tomato cut in half, we used multi-colored
  • 1 oz red onion finely diced
  • 0.5 oz coriander roughly chopped
  • 3 oz cucumber sliced
  • 0.25 oz grated Parmesan cheese


  • Cook the tortellini: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add 4 oz tortellini and cook according to package instructions (ours took 7 minutes). Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain well and leave to cool.
  • Make the dressing: In a small bowl, combine 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, 2 tsp lemon juice, 1/2 tbsp honey, 1/4 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp traditional Dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  • Mix the salad: In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the Parmesan cheese. Drizzle the dressing and toss to coat evenly.
  • Serve: You can eat it right away or put it in the fridge for 10 minutes to let it cool before serving. Garnish with a sprinkle of 0.25 oz grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy.
