Cilantro Pasta Salad

WP_20130629_002

We slow smoked a couple of pork roasts and a brisket recently and needed something that would be light and slightly spicy to offset the delicious meat.  Thus was born the awesomeness that is Cilantro Pasta Salad.  We both love the Cilantro Ranch Dressing we get from Fresh and Easy.  It is the slightly spicy love child of ranch and green goddess salad dressings.  The result is the perfect salad dressing.

Toss warm pasta, dressing, sliced bell peppers. shredded cheese, and fresh pick cilantro together.  Salt and pepper to taste and serve with finely sliced green onions.  It is the perfect pasta salad for BBQ dinners, a light lunch, and a quick late night snack for those nights when it is just too hot to sleep.
