I loved this! I played with it a little. My husband wasn't thrilled with the idea of using spaghetti noodles, so I used the spirals instead. After reading a comment about the lack of flavor, I adde two envelopes of Italian seasoning dressing along with 16oz Zesty italian dressing. It was sooooo good. I got a lot of compliments on it!

use this spaghetti salad recipe but also can add pepperoni cut into quarters as well. Also many people use Salad Supreme (found by spices) instead of Italian Dressing mix.

My Family Enjoyed this recipie, it was quick and easy and tasted great! Especially when it has had time to marinade. This would be a great recipie to make the day before!

I make a similar salad to this, but I like using angel hair pasta, rather than spaghetti, and break in thirds before cooking. Also try adding a package of pepperoni cut into quarters.....YUMMY!

Oh, I love this stuff! I used half a bottle of Ken's Steakhouse Three Cheese Italian and added mayo and garlic powder. ( I prefer it to be a little more creamy and a bit less tangy.) I added diced bell pepper and chunks of turkey and I also broke my spaghetti into thirds before cooking. It's definitely better to make this the day before you plan to serve it.Very good flavor... light and fresh. DH says to add black olives next time. Thanks for the post!

I had to make a salad for my daughters school - I made this, but did a few changes. I added purple onion instead of green. I added a jar of McCormick Salad Supreme; which added alot of flavor. It is a good basic recipe. You can do so much to it to create your own. Will use recipe again.

Delicious!!! It was actually a very refreshing after work lunch. I left out the olives (hubby doesn't like those) and used Ken's Steakhouse Zesty Italian dressing which is a stronger dressing so it had plenty of taste. The only thing I'm going to do different next time is use two cucumbers, maybe I just like them too much but one just didn't seem to be enough.

My aunt and I love to entertain by the masses, but our budget tends to be tight... so this was the perfect recipe for a recent shower that we hosted. We were able to class this dish up by piling the pasta high and topping it off with 2 to 3 beef and shrimp skewers. Serve with a flavored iced tea and a beautiful dessert and everyone will think you are the best hostess ever!
