1. Set a large pot of water to boil (for pasta). Salt boiling water generously; add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package instructions.
2. Meanwhile, wash the radishes, remove stems and cut into thin slices. Put them in a bowl.
3. Cut lime in half. Keep one half aside for later. Make thin slices with the second half, remove the skin. Then cut each slice into 4 and put in the bowl with radishes.
4. Peel the red onion and chop it very finely. Wash the sweet pepper, remove the seeds, and chop very finely. Put everything into the bowl.
5. Dice avocado after removing the kernel. Sprinkle the juice of the second lime half to prevent them from turning brown, and add the other ingredients.
6. Rince and chisel cilantro. Add to the other ingredients.
7. Once pasta is cooked, drain, and rinse with cold water to cool down and prevent from becoming sticky.
8. Allow to drain well with a colander.
9. Then add pasta to the bowl with cilantro.
10. Prepare the sauce: beat olive oil with vinegar. Season, and pour into the bowl over the pasta salad.
Mix, and serve!
