Instant Pot Tortellini Salad

The recipe I saw on my Facebook group had a southwestern salad with corn, black beans and cilantro. I did not have any of those ingredients. However, the idea of cooking tortellini in the instant pot really piqued my interest on this 97 degree day.

You will not heat up your home, and you will have a wonderful salad in well under an hour.

What I liked about the recipe was the versatility. For this salad, I used lettuce, snow peas, string beans, carrots, parsley, basil, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado and homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

The recipe called for a 19 ounce bag of three cheese tortellini. I had a 12 ounce bag of large cheese ravioli. Nonetheless, the ravioli was cooked to perfection.

You can also cook the tortellini on the stovetop, if you do not have an instant pot.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

  3. Add the tortellini.
  4. Pressure cook for one minute. Natural pressure release for two minutes, then quick release.
  5. Drain and rinse the tortellini in cool water. Refrigerate for a half hour.
  6. In the meantime, wash and chop your vegetables.
  7. When the tortellini is cold, add to the salad, add the dressing and serve.

Great use of your Instant Pot during the hot summer months. Mine sits on the counter unused this time of year, unless I'm making rice.
