Crunchy “pasta” salad.

Its the middle of summer, which means vacations, cook outs, and pool parties.  Are you running out of “healthy” side dishes to serve?  This recipe may be the one for you!

This recipe was first created as a way to clean out the refrigerator.  A few days before I made it, I had made a Zucchini Tomato Salad ( Recipe to post later), this bright recipe is full of herbs, especially dill, spices and dill. Super easy to make.  But I wanted something extra.  Since I had spaghetti squash already cooked up, I just mixed them up. And it was FANTASTIC, and one of my go to recipes now.
