This is a delicious and simple pasta salad that my family loves! This salad is perfect for a Cinco de Mayo party, Barbeque, or a potluck. It is tasty and will be a crowd pleaser for sure. I love the flavors with the creamy lime dressing and the fresh cilantro. The Cotija Cheese is what makes this salad the best! I love anything with Cotija in it! I hope that you love this salad as much as we do!



2 c. Bowtie Pasta, uncooked

2-15 oz. cans Corn

3 Green Onions

1 Avocado

1 c. Cotija Cheese


½ c. Mayonnaise

3 Tbl. Lime Juice

1/8 tsp. Cumin

¼ tsp. Paprika

½ tsp. Chili Powder
