Spaghetti Salad

1 (16 ounce) package spaghetti
1 cucumber
1 red onion
1 green pepper
1 (12 to 16 ounce) package cherry or grape tomatoes
1 ½ to 2 cups Zesty Italian salad dressing

Prepare spaghetti according to package directions.  Chop cucumber, red onion, and green pepper into bite sized pieces.  

In large bowl, combine all ingredients.  Mix well.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.   

I like to make it the day before so the flavors have plenty of time to blend.

Growing up it seemed that every picnic or dinner we attended during the summer had some form of this recipe there.  You can add pepperoni, salami, cheese, celery, or other vegetables to this simple and delicious salad.

  1. Now that looks delicious! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. The one that my mom used to always make had tuna, mayo, and shredded carrots in it. I HATE tuna but I loved that salad.
