Rosanne's Spaghetti Salad

I've had requests for the spaghetti salad that Rosanne made last monday at our sewing day!

Here you go:


1 lb. spaghetti
1/2 jar Salad Supreme (By McCormick, comes in a shaker jar thing in the spice aisle)
1 sm. bottle Italian dressing
1 bunch radishes
1 tomato, chopped (Or sliced grape or cherry tomatoes)
1 bell pepper
4 celery stalks
5 green onions
1 cucumber, quartered & sliced.
1 package pepperoni slices
sliced olives

I also think that feta cheese would go great in here, or Parmesan or whatever you have on hand. What about mushrooms? Throw those in too. Grated carrot? go for it!

Cook the spaghetti. Dice up radishes, tomato, bell pepper, celery and green onions. Rinse spaghetti well after it is cooked. Mix all the vegetables with the spaghetti. Add pepperoni and cheeses if desired. Pour the Salad Supreme and Italian dressing over the mixture and stir well. Chill for 2 hours before serving. Mix well again before serving.

This is one of those things that also probably tastes better the next day, that is IF there is any left!

P.S. this is the "INDUSTRIAL" size jar of Salad Supreme...you know, Sam's Club? Costco? I'm thinking that 1/2 a jar of the "normal" supermarket version is probably about 2 tablespoons worth?(Or is this where they suggest 'to taste'??)

Wow! That sounds and looks soooo yummy. Will have to try it on hubby.
And I am so glad my package arrived to you. If you want more of that fabric I have a 15 yard bolt that is crying to be used!

HI Bonnie
Is the salad supreme a tomato based sauce? I don't think that this sauce is available in Western Canada so I wondered what the flavoring was like- The recipe looks wonderful and I thought I might try it.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Bonnie,
When I read the recipe again I realized that the salad supreme is a spice that is added to the italian dressing- it helps if I would have read more carefully_ sorry about that... My guess is the spices are Italian seasonings - basil, oregano thyme - would that be a good guess?
Hope that you are having a good weekend..

I have a recipe that is similar to this. It has pepperoni in it. We loved it and have it often.

I will have to try this one.I would use leftover spaghetti because I always make too much.

We have been making this for years! We usually use twist pasta though. The salad supreme isn't an exact amount. We just taste test and add more if it needs it. Use any crunchy veggies you can and as many colors too. This stuff is a hit everywhere you go!

Bonnie, thanks for that recipe. I plan on making it for my 4th Celebration. It should go well with BBQ. I also have a spinach salad that uses ramen noodles, that I want to try. It maybe a 2 salad party!
