Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Drain well and cool completely.

In a medium bowl or plastic sealable bag, place the tortellini, mozzarella cubes, tomatoes and olives. Set aside.

In a glass measuring cup or jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine all the marinade ingredients. Pour the marinade over the tortellini. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally.
