We liked this a lot. I used a mixture of orzo and rotini for the pasta because I realised too late that I didn't have the full box of orzo that I thought I did. I left out the cilantro but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I would definitely recommend using a thinner salsa for this to get good coverage. I used a very chunky salsa and it didn't get dispersed very well through the salad. Or maybe use some taco sauce instead or a combination of both. I really liked the taste and it was very easy to throw together. It was also large enough that the two of us could eat it as a meal and still have some leftovers for lunch today. Thanks for posting!

Very good salad. Used store-bought salsa and next time I will use self-made as we wanted it a little hotter. Used just a pinch of salt and about four turns of the pepper mill. Took some of it for lunch at work and of course it had to be tasted. Only positive sounds and could they please have the recipe. The salad is easy to make, tasty and highly recommended. Made for PAC Spring '08. Thanks for posting.

Great salad! I followed the recipe to a T. Here's a tip - I had about a cup of chunky salsa left in the jar, so I added the olive oil and fresh lemon juice and then used my handy immersion blender to puree it all right in the jar. Made for a wonderfully smooth dressing. At first I thought the olive oil taste was a tad too strong, but once this mellowed in the fridge for a couple hours, it's perfect. I used 1 tsp. salt and several turns of the pepper mill. This salad is so fresh tasting; we'll be chowing on it all weekend. Thank you!
