What goes in a spaghetti salad?
This a a spaghetti salad recipe with Italian dressing, and other fresh garden ingredients. Everyone loves it.

Meat – salami or pepperoni
Your favorite dressing
THIS IS HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE SPAGHETTI SALAD:
All you are going to do is add these ingredients to a bowl. My trick is to cut the vegetables into pieces. Then you can get more vegetables in one bite!
1 16 oz. thin spaghetti, halved
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup cucumber, diced
1 cup Salami slices (or pepperoni, or both), cut into small pieces
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 small Red pepper, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 cup black olives, drained, thinly sliced
1 bottle Italian salad dressing, (I like to use Ken’s dressing)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Teaspoon McCormick Salad Supreme
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Paprika
Cook spaghetti according to package directions, then rinse with cold water and drain. Set aside and let cool.
Now, Place tomatoes and zucchini, squash, peppers, onion, cucumber, olives, and cheese in a large serving bowl.
Add cooked spaghetti noodles and mix well.
Mix the salad dressing, Parmesan cheese, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
Pour on top of the spaghetti and vegetables and mix until combined.
Sprinkle the top with Salad Supreme.
Let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving (this salad gets better with time, as the flavors meld together
