Tuna Tortellini Salad
Cook tortellini according to package directions. Rinse tortellini with cold water to prevent them from continuing to cook. Let excess water strain off.
Add 2 (5 ounce) cans of tuna in olive oil to a bowl. The olive oil the tuna is packed in will be added to the salad as it’s packed with flavor.
Add quartered cherry tomatoes, diced shallots, and strained tortellini to the bowl. Add Chive Vinaigrette and stir until well combined.
Refrigerate in a lidded container until serving. For best results, chill for 2-4 hours before serving to let the flavors meld.
When serving, garnish with freshly chopped chives (optional).
For best results, store in a lidded container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
