Pinstripes Chopped Salad Copycat | Live Love Pasta

A salad at Pinstripes inspired a food blogger to create and share this restaurant copycat recipe.

Pinstripes Chopped Salad Copycat ingredients (14)
Makes 5 servings
Fried tortellini
Vegetable oil, enough to fry the tortellini
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
1 cup Italian bread crumbs

Chopped salad
1 cup fresh cheese tortellini
Romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup medium bocconcini, cut in half
1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

Pinstripes Chopped Salad Copycat Directions
Get ready
Assemble the equipment and ingredients.

Fry the fresh tortellini 
Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan.

Meanwhile, and in a small bowl, prepare the egg wash by whisking together 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water.

Into another small bowl, pour the 1 cup of Italian bread crumbs. Dip the tortellini in the egg wash, then dredge in the bread crumbs.

Fry the tortellini, a few at a time, in the hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Remove from heat and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Assemble salad 
In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, tomatoes, cheeses, olives, beans and onions.

Add the fried tortellini and chow mein noodles; toss lightly.

Top with Greek vinaigrette; add optional grilled chicken or seafood, if using, and serve immediately.

Pinstripes Chopped Salad Copycat Notes
  • Adding fried tortellini and chow mein noodles last keeps them from getting soggy.
