Not Pasta Salad

This is an adaptation of an old Weight Watcher's recipe. I learned to use spaghetti squash from them.

This was long before the "points" thing with WW so I have no idea of points on this but with the addition of avocado I am sure it is high.

NOTE: Once avocado is sliced you should pour dresing over it as soon as possible or it will turn black.

How to Make Not Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Oil Vinaigrette Dressing Instructions:
    Shake all ingredients together in a lightly covered container. Refrigerate until chilled or up to 24 hours before preparing salad.
  2. Vegetable Salad Instructions:
    Halve squash lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Place both halves cut-side down in a large saucepan; add water to a depth of 2 inches. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer squash 20 minutes. Drain and cool squash. With a fork, pull off spaghetti-like stands of the squash and place in a large salad bowl.
  3. Mix together the squash, mushrooms, peppers, olives and avocado. Pour Oil Vinaigrette Dressing over vegetables and toss gently. Serve immediately or chill until serving time.

    NOTE: Once avocado is sliced you should pour dresing over it as soon as possible or it will turn black.
