  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 my favorite summer salads. It's great because there is no mayo or egg so no refrigeration issues for an outside/picnic issue. I use 2 T of McCormick's Salad Supreme seasoning inst...
