Spaghetti Salad Recipe

You can make an easy and delicious Spaghetti Salad Recipe and have a great all in one meal, your family is sure to love. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to make way too much spaghetti, when cooking for my family.

When you are accustomed to cooking for 5 or more people and it changes to 2 or 3 people, it can be hard to readjust your cooking techniques. When I open a 1 lb box of spaghetti, it’s just easier to cook the whole box, instead of worrying about storing the remainder of spaghetti in the box.

Spaghetti Salad is a great way to turn leftover spaghetti into a planned meal.

When I make Spaghetti Salad, I don’t follow a specific recipe. Today’s Spaghetti Salad Recipe was made completely from leftovers. How awesome is that?

Technically, they weren’t leftovers, they were planned overs. I had a plan in place to use them later in the week. Last night we had Spaghetti, meatballs, and salad for supper. The planned overs made this  Spaghetti Salad Recipe. Simple, frugal, and delicious! What more could you ask for?

This spaghetti salad recipe does have one secret ingredient, that not everyone will have in their spice cabinet,  McCormick’s Salad Supreme (affiliate link). 

 When I was growing up, my Dad never made Spaghetti Salad without using Salad Supreme. As a matter of fact, he used Salad Supreme in a lot of the things he cooked. The two I remember specifically are Spaghetti Salad and scrambled eggs. That is a great childhood memory. I don’t have too many of those.

Spaghetti salad is an easy meal idea you can make out of planned overs

Spaghetti Salad Recipe

Here’s the basic Spaghetti Salad Recipe I use. You can adjust it to suit your families tastes and preferences.

You will need to have leftover cold spaghetti, Salad Dressing, Cut up vegetables and Salad Supreme.

I use Italian or Balsamic Vinaigrette salad dressing. You could really use any dressing. We have made it with ranch and honey mustard for other occasions. If you really want to jazz up your salad you could make a homemade Fennel Frond Pesto for some fabulous fresh flavors.

Today’s salad recipe used leftover chopped vegetables from a veggie tray, whole grain cooked spaghetti and light balsamic vinaigrette dressing .

Toss your spaghetti with dressing of your choice.  Sprinkle with 1 – 2 teaspoons of Salad Supreme. Add in chopped vegetables. Use additional dressing if needed. Serve cold. Choose your favorite fresh vegetables, cut in bite size pieces, favorite salad dressing and you will have a Spaghetti Salad recipe tailored to your taste preferences.

Spaghetti Salad is a great way to use up leftover pasta and vegetables.

Spaghetti Salad is a great side dish, meal, lunch or pot luck dish. Do you have any special ingredients you add to pasta salads?
