This dish is so easy to make and doesn’t take long at all. Enjoy making it! I hope you love it as much as me.

Layering up the Spaghetti Salad in a large bowl step by step

Layer the ingredients in a bowl as you chop them up. Mix them together and add the freshly cooked spaghetti on top. Mix again and serve straight away. the fresh herbs add such a wonderful flavour and mixed with the vinegar dressing it is a lovely taste. The crunch of the red onion and softness of the tomatoes and spaghetti works so well.

It’s so light and easy to eat. The taste is wonderful and this is always my go to quick dinner.

The flavour of this salad is incredible. I love it. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or for lunch box the next day I am addicted to this dish. It really has the incredible summer flavours and mixes is freshness and healthiness. It is also a great dish for parties and barbecues.
