Why I Love This Recipe

I grew Spaghetti squash 1 yr and decided to try it instead of the pasta in regular pasta salad. But the dressing wasn't right. So then tried it again using Italian in 1 batch and a vinaigrette on 2nd batch. Both were good :)

Ingredients You'll Need

Italian or vinaigrette dressing
1-2 Spaghetti squash depending on size
1/2 onion diced
1/2 green or yellow sweet bell pepper diced
1 cucumber peeled and cut in thick slices then 1/4 the slices
About 5 white mushrooms chopped
About 5 Roma paste tomato (or other paste tom.) chopped
Cheddar cheese cubed or shredded
*Opt: 1 clove garlic minced or a couple shakes garlic powder
*Opt: 1 stalk celery diced
*Opt: Baby spinach leaves stems removed
*Opt: Mild peppers
*Opt: Chickpeas
*Opt: 1/2 - 1 can of lima or butter beans
*Opt: Meat of your choice cooked and chopped into bite size chunks (chicken, ham, pork chops/ pork steaks/ or roast, steak, turkey, Atlantic salad shrimp, Those round jerky type sticks, pepperoni, kielbasa, sausage links, leftover hamburgers ect )
*Opt: Add some Activia yogurt (adds health benefits but not needed for salad)
