Mexican Pasta Salad With Salsa

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Oolala

Very different from the other pasta salads already posted here. Got this from Very simple to make with few ingredients. You could get creative and add more ingredients like corn, beans, and olives but this is a good base. Nice for the warmer weather. We loved this. I used Miracle Whip, which I like better in this salad, and 2 cloves garlic for mine. Mild salsa goes down better with my kids but use a stronger one if you like.

This was a great day salad to serve with fajitas. I did add black beans and corn. i didn't have salsa so I blended a can of Rotel and added the cilantro to the blender. YUM
