A family friend made this recipe for a party we had once.  My family couldn’t get enough.  Everyone devoured it and was begging for the recipe.

Turns out, it was a fairly simple cold spaghetti salad recipe.  And, it’s perfect for summer parties because there isn’t any mayonnaise in it.  Just lots of fresh veggies, cheese and and a flavorful dressing.

When making this recipe, I’ve found that it’s easiest to use a spaghetti pot like this one.  It really does make it easier.  And, if you can’t find sliced black olives, just use your egg slicer.

The recipe made a big batch so it’s the perfect pot luck recipe.  But, it’s also easy to cut the recipe in half too.
