Tex-Mex Pasta Salad

Tex-Mex Pasta Salad

Tex-Mex Pasta Salad – pasta combined with fresh vegetables and tossed with a homemade vinaigrette. It’s cool, delicious and a perfect dish for a hot summer’s day!

Hello again!  It’s me,  Leia from Eat It & Say Yum.  Today I am sharing a great summer side dish. This Tex-Mex Pasta Salad is so easy to make and is perfect for a family meal or a pot luck.  Plus it’s a chilled salad so it’s nice and refreshing during these hot months.

One thing I love about chilled pasta salads, especially this one, is all the fresh produce that goes into it.  Plus you can add more or less of things and it will still taste great.  So functional.
