Summer Spaghetti Salad

When I was a little girl, my Aunt Suzanne would bring this wonderful salad to potlucks we would has as a family. It was a favorite of mine. I called my mom to ask for the recipe (which she had!). I quickly realized my grocer did not have all the stuff I needed for the salad, so I decided to recreate it. It turned out great! So, if you would like to try a yummy spaghetti salad, here is the one. Why not make it for your next potluck?
Summer Spaghetti salad
16oz of spaghetti noodles, cooked and rinsed until cold
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 large cucumber, peeled and diced
1 medium white onion, peeled and diced
1 c. Italian salad dressing (I used Wishbone)
1/4 T garlic salt
1/4 T sesame seeds
1/4 T poppy seeds
1/2 T red pepper
1/2 T fresh ground black pepper
1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
Mix all into a bowl and refrigerate until ready to eat. Yum! Yum!
