Spaghetti Pasta Salad

Jump to Recipe

Spaghetti Pasta Salad, as part of Mexican cuisine, may come as a surprise to many. But the truth is pasta salads are often the perfect accompaniment for many Mexican dishes. I specifically like the combination with my oregano chicken recipe, a classic from Oaxaca, Mexico. Its use is a commonality depending on the dish. Another way you can find a specific type of pasta would be for tacos.

although It isn’t rare to find the option of pasta salad at your local taqueria, making your own will give you that much more satisfaction. If you have the chance to visit a traditional taqueria, it will allow you the opportunity to taste such a unique combination. Though it would probably not be spaghetti but coditos (elbow shaped pasta). Either way you find it will make for a great addition to the experience!
