Spaghetti Salad

I love Spaghetti Salad....with all the pasta, and what I call goodies in it... tons of veggies, I put mini turkey pepperoni, and freshly grated parmesan cheese.... goodness in a bowl.. but whenever I make it people seem in awe of this...they think it is so complicated when it really couldn't be easier... put it all in a big bowl mix, chill and serve it... you can put whatever veggies you like. To save time you can go to the produce section or your favorite salad bar where all the chopping is done for you ,or chop the veggies yourself. Another couple of secrets...for the dressing, I use sugar, olive oil, & rice wine vinegar (or use lemon anything to brighten up that flavor) and you MUST use McCormick Salad Supreme (1/2 bottle) sprinkled in with the dressing ingredients... that is what gives it that yummy flavor...also the parmesan cheese is optional..but it gives the salad better flavor...Enjoy
