Super Simple Spaghetti Salad!

I heard the weather man say that Autumn will officially be hear on Saturday at around 7:00 am PST. Well, finally! So, I wanted to hurry up and share this little, super simple, summer side dish that I have made for years, Spaghetti Salad. You will love this recipe because you can tailor the ingredients to fit what you like!
Spaghetti Salad
You will want to refrigerate this salad before serving.
It should be cold when served.
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • Spaghetti (cooked and cooled)
  • Raspberry Vinaigrette
  • McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning
Chop up your ingredients to bite size.
Place in bowl with spaghetti. Toss together.
Add a little dressing. 
You can always add more, but 
start with just a little.
Toss together. Wait a while to add more dressing
if you think it needs it. Refrigerate until cold.
Take out of fridge, and sprinkle the top of the salad
with salad supreme. Toss. 
Taste the salad. If you want to add more
dressing, now is the time to do so. 
Sprinkle top of salad with more 
salad supreme before serving.

This recipe contains the ingredients that I used this time.
Over the years I have also used red, yellow,
and orange peppers, along with onion and tomato.
 That looks very pretty!  I have also used red onion, and 
Italian dressing. Here are a few other ingredients 
you could use:
  • small corn
  • zucchini wedges
  • cucumbers slices
  • hard boiled egg
  • garden tomatoes
