Southwestern Pasta Salad
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
8 servings
Rotini, or the pasta of your choice, is tossed with a zesty dressing of lime juice, chili powder and cumin. Corn, black beans, red and green bell pepper, tomatoes and cilantro add texture, flavor and color. Serve on a bed of lettuce for a nice touch. Original by Lisa P., this is my version.
