Recipe For Fiesta Pasta Salad


I realize you could just hop over to the Foodbuzz site to see all of these recipes, but like any proud parent, I am posting this recipe here, too. I seem to post a lot of salads in this blue bowl. I should just start calling it the salad bowl.

This salad was truly inspired. It is amazing. Pasta salads are always Italian. I decided to take my inspiration from my surroundings and go Southwest. Who knew? You will love this.
