Zesty Tortellini Salad

This is my MOST FAVORITE pasta salad in the entire world.  You can't not love it.  The flavors are so rich but light and fresh and crisp.  I could eat this by the bucket (and I do).  This is not your typical pasta salad!

Zesty Tortellini Salad
adapted from The Kitchn

1 cup very finely chopped red onion
1 20 oz. package cheese tortellini, cooked, drained & cooled
1 red bell pepper, diced in small pieces
4 oz. Genoa salami, sliced in thin strips
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
squeeze of lemon juice
1 heaping tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients but parsley, salt and pepper.  Toss to coat evenly.  Mix in salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in parsley just before serving.
