I made this dish for a potluck with my neighbors and everyone loved it. I left the avocadas on the side along with some lime flavored tortilla strips. This recipe has a great flavor and I loved the simple ingredients. This would be a great picnic dish. Thanks for the post.

This was great when I needed a quick potluck dish. I had to do without cilantro, but otherwise, I made the dressing as written. Used a can of diced tomatoes in place of the grape tomatoes, and didn't have an avocado, but it was still great. Next time I'll add both cilantro and avocado, because I think it would be even better.

LOVED this recipe! I am always on the quest for recipes with a texmex/southwestern feel, and when I had to bring a pasta salad to a luncheon, this one hit the spot! I doubled it, and didn't bother with the avocado (although I love them) or the chips, and still was delish!

Awesome!!! I made 1 and a half servings and added an orange bell pepper. I would have added a jalapeno but the store was out! I also added some lime zest and the pulp from the lime for extra flavor. Everyone really enjoyed this dish! A great alternative to boring pasta salad! THANKS!!!

I made this pasta salad for a cookout today. I was a little nervous because I usually try recipes out before serving it to guests but it was a huge hit everyone loved it including myself. The only thing I did different was I did not add the avocado but I did everything else by the recipe. It was great. I had several people ask me for the recipe before they left. I will be making this again and again. Thank you for posting this recipe it is wonderful.

Love this pasta salad... I doubled it for a picnic and although it was a huge hit, it made a TON. Making it for another party today by request.
