Kosterina Simple Vinaigrette


    • Pour all ingredients into a mason jar, cover with a tight lid and shake vigorously to combine. This is a great dressing for green salads, too.

 Tortellini Directions:

  1. Cook tortellini based on package instructions; cooking in boiling water 2-3 minutes until they float. Drain and rinse to prevent overcooking and empty the tortellini into a large bowl and pour vinaigrette over the pasta.  Mix and set aside.
  2. Chop the other ingredients above, add to the bowl with the tortellini and toss until everything is evenly coasted. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.  Tastes great cold or at room temp. Enjoy!
