Summer Spaghetti Salad

This salad can defiantly be used as the main course of your meal or as a side salad at your family barbecue, I've used it for both. One of my sweet nieces begs me to bring this to every family party, it's her favorite. I love it because its so easy, so versatile and its very delicious. Give it a try~

Summer Spaghetti Salad
Spaghetti, cooked and drained
tomato's, diced
grated cheese
sliced olives (my family doesn't like them, so I leave them out...but topped them with a few)
cucumbers, diced
1 bottle of Italian dressing (I use fat-free and it doesn't lack any of the taste)

Combine all the ingredients and serve immediately. For an extra kick add cooked, cold shrimp (frozen-but thawed...not canned) or imitation crab...I've tried all 3 ways and I love all of them....Its just a wonderful tasting salad no matter what you do to it.

*Putting the tomatoes in it is tricky. If you want leftovers, don't add the tomatoes directly to the salad because they sort of go soggy and weird, put them in a bowl to the side and add to your own plate. BUT if you are planning on eating the entire thing or throwing away the leftovers...add the tomatoes. 

Happy Cooking~
