Spaghetti Squash Summer Salad

Mary Gelfond


This is a great refreshing vegan dish or can be served as a side dish.
I like the Marzetti lemon dressing, though you can try others, or you can make your own lemon dressing. Lemon really sets off the flavor.
I grew my own chocolate mint. You may choose another fresh mint if desired.
