My Fajita Bowtie Salad is perfect when you’re looking for something people haven’t been served a million times before. Simple and full of great flavors this pasta salad would be a fabulous addition to any Cinco de Mayo celebration!

This pasta salad also makes a great lunch. Of course you can also make it for dinner, simply round it out with a bowl of fresh fruit, and maybe some cornbread. Dinner is served!

For this salad I used leftover rotisserie chicken, which I normally never have. But today I did, the boys were gone (hehe). But you could also cook off a couple of chicken breasts and cut them up if you prefer.

Corn and Black Bean Salsa is perfect for this pasta salad. If you’re wondering what that thing with the hearts is, it’s my spatula. Sorry I know it looks a little funny here.

Chopped fresh cilantro would be great on this pasta salad! I used parsley because my guys really don’t like cilantro, they say it tastes like soap. Either way this pasta salad is wonderful. I like to serve it with the rest of the salsa from the jar on the side.
