    artkitty's Note:

    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.

      This is a wonderful salad! Very fresh taste and full of color. Served this to some friends and they just loved it. I was nervous about adding a whole tablespoon of chili powder thinking it would make the salad too spicy, but it only gave it a nice flavor and didn't make it taste spicy at all. Made for PAC and I'll be making it again! Thanks!
