Hi again! We're Kat & Melinda from Home. Made. Interest. and we're all about easy recipes and simple entertaining. That’s why we love simple pasta salads like Greek Spaghetti Salad, Mexican Pasta Salad with Creamy Chipotle Lime Dressing, and Cucumber and Tomato Pasta Salad. They can all be thrown together quickly, or you can make them ahead of time. Either way they will save you time whether you are attending a backyard BBQ or just grilling outside with the family on a Friday night.



Helpful Tips to make Greek Spaghetti Salad:

  • Make sure you salt the water when you boil your spaghetti. This will give the pasta a little more flavor.
  • Make it ahead of time! Cook your pasta and chop your vegetables the day before and store everything together in an airtight container. Make and store your Greek vinaigrette separately. When you’re ready to eat pour the vinaigrette over the pasta salad and toss it until everything is well coated. 
  • You can roast your own red peppers or save some time and use a jar of roasted red peppers.

What you will need to make Greek Spaghetti Salad:

  • StrainerYou can’t make pasta without a good strainer! Make sure to drain the water from the pasta thoroughly before adding the other ingredients.
  • KnifeThe pasta is the only thing that has to be cooked for this recipe after that it’s all chopping. A good knife makes getting perfectly diced vegetables that much easier. 
  • Garlic Press – Save yourself some time and use a garlic press to crush your garlic rather than mincing it by hand.
  • Bowl with Lid – This Greek Spaghetti Salad is going to be making an appearance at a lot of summer potlucks and that means you need an easy way to get it there. A large bowl with a tightly fastened lid can go straight from the fridge to the party.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
