How to Make Millie's Holy Guacamole Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, (preferably one with a lid), combine cilantro, lime juice, & diced avocado.
  2. Stir until all the avocado has been coated with some of the lime juice (this will prevent the avocado from browning!).
  3. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine!
  4. Season with sea salt to taste. Ground red pepper can also be added for a spicier flavor.
  5. Chill and serve. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
