I have made this salad for three family occasions! It is always a big hit. I'm not a vegetable cutter, so I have made the salad without the broccoli and cauliflower and it has been tasty! My husband loves veggies, and loves to cut them and the salad is great that way too!
Lots of people try to guess all the ingredients in the recipe! Most of them don't guess the Hidden Valley Ranch Packet or the seasoning! It's really a great, tangy recipe that is well worth the work (which isn't much) and you will not take any leftovers home!!!!
I tried this recipe for our local firemen on a mutual fire call. Only the first wave of fireman got to try it. As they ate the whole large bowl I had made. Others where disappointed that they did not get to try this wonderful looking and smelling salad.
Wow! I prepared this for a church social. It was a big hit! Everyone wanted to take home the leftover salad. I will be using this recipe again.
This was absolutley delicious. The only changes I made was I substituted red bell pepper for the olives and added small cubes of whole milk mozzarella. everybody loved this dish.
This had a good flavor and it certainly makes a LOT. Remember to break the spaghetti into smaller pieces before cooking for easier eating.
Prep. time a lot longer but well worth the compliments!!
This won rave reviews at a barbecue we just attended. My picky husband who doesn't usually eat spaghetti salad thought it was great. I omitted cauliflower, I added red bell pepper and a large sized tomato chopped.
THIS RECIPE WAS GREAT. I DID NOT PUT CULLIFLOWER IN IT THOUGH.
