Quick Pasta Mexicana

What you need: 

about one half to one full pound of your favorite pasta (I like soba, or udon)
one cup julienned cucumber
one cup chopped tomatoes
one big bunch of cilantro, chopped up
one avocado, cut into slices or chunks
one cup of corn kernels, cooked, if you want (opt.)
one cup of salsa, preferably homemade, but any good one will do
one tablespoon of olive oil, or flax, or hemp if you wish
one teaspoon cumin seeds, ground
one teaspoon dried oregano, or fresh to taste
chili powder to taste
one or two minced chili peppers of your choice, to taste

What you do: 

Cook pasta according to directions, and drain when done. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium-size bowl, and set aside. Toss the pasta in a large bowl with all the veggies, and then toss in the sauce. Enjoy! (This is a seemingly simple recipe, but it will become one of your obsessive favorites really quickly!)
OPTIONS: Toss in a cup of cooked beans, your choice. i.e.: chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, etc... Or anything else sort of mexican-ey your imagination can come up with!
