I had this at a family reunion. Several years later I was wanting this and played around until I came up with this recipe. I am always asked to bring it to potlucks at work.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  2. Place spaghetti into a large salad bowl and toss with red onion, red bell pepper, cucumber, tomato, Italian salad dressing, salad dressing mix, and salt. Chill before serving; salad is better the longer it chills.

This is one of our favorite summer salads. This really works well with whatever pasta you have on hand. I like to make my own italian salad dressing mix and I do not add the additional salt. Sometimes, I'll cube up some cheese (any I have on hand, really) or throw in a quarter cup of shredded parmesan, just for flavor.

This is our favorite summer pasta salad, we add sliced black or green olives which ever we have at the time & canned plain or marinated artichoke hearts drained, we do like the spiral noodles as they hold onto the dressing. A great recipe!

This is great addition to your summer recipes. Although my version would not be consider a "light" version. I add fresh mozzeralla, spicey olives, cubed pepporini and just before serving freshly grated romano cheese. Has always been a hit at my barbeque parties!!!!!!!!!!!!!
