Spaghetti Salad

Cindi Bauer


I love this salad, and while the recipe does make a lot, this pasta salad is sure to please your guests. I do make this salad one day prior to serving, and that's so I can incorporate a bit more of the Italian dressing into the salad.

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook the spaghetti, then rinse under cold water till the spaghetti is cool. Drain well. (I cooked my spaghetti exactly for 12 minutes.)
Marinade the spaghetti over night with the 16-ounces of Italian dressing.
The next day (or morning), add the remaining ingredients, plus the 2/3's cup of Italian dressing.
Chill the salad several hours in the refrigerator, before serving.
Note: Another really tasty Italian Dressing you can use in place of the Kraft's Dressing... Fit & Active Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing (which is sold at Aldi's).
