  • 1 lb fresh tortellini pasta
  • 1/3 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup mixed olives, in oil
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, quartered
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella, chunks
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 handful fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 pinch sea salt and pepper, to taste


  • Cook tortellini according to package instructions. I recommend cooking for 1-2 minutes less then recommended, so the tortellini can hold it’s shape better and dish will last longer. 
  • Meanwhile chop the onion, tomatoes, cucumber, olive and mozzarella cheese and add to a large bowl. 
  • In a small glass bowl mix in the oil dressing with fresh basil and salt and pepper to taste. 
  • When tortellini is done cooking and cooled a bit, add to the bowl along with oil dressing and fold to combine. 
  • Serve at room temperature or cold. Leftovers can be refrigerated and will taste amazing for up to 3 days!
