Green Chili, Tomatillo, and Avocado Pasta Salad

Published April 9, 2012 by jenmatteson

A few days ago, I made Chicken with Green Chili, Tomatillo, and Avocado Sauce, and there was a LOT of extra sauce.  The following day, we had an impromptu get together in which we were going to grill out.  I decided a pasta salad was in order, and Nate suggested using the Green Chili, Tomatillo, and Avocado Sauce with the salad – so I did, and it was excellent!

Because there are avocados in the sauce, it wasn’t quite as vibrant as it was on the first day it was made, but it still tasted wonderful!
