This Antipasto Tortellini Salad is hands down my favorite pasta salad recipe of all time. A super balanced salad with zesty pepperoncini peppers, earthy beans, and fragrant basil. Bring this antipasto tortellini salad to a picnic or potluck and it is sure to be a huge hit.

This pasta salad recipe is incredibly versatile, so get creative if you are missing any of the ingredients or make this vegetarian by omitting the salami. I make this Antipasto Tortellini Salad on repeat all Summer long and soon you will too.
