Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 8 people


  • 1 pound Gemelli pasta
  • 5 ounces pork longaniza (half of a 10-ounce packaged link)
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 2 green onions
  • 3/4 cup cilantro dressing
  • salt to taste


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. While the pasta is cooking, cook longaniza on medium-low heat until cooked through but not crispy. Set aside to cool.

  2. When the pasta is done, drain and rinse with cold water. Mix cilantro dressing and pasta together until all the dressing has been absorbed by the pasta.

Recipe Notes

This salad can be made in advance, just remember to keep it in the fridge until you're ready to bring it out to serve. It can be served immediately, or straight out of the fridge. Either way, it's good!
