    breezermom's Note:

    This is a great recipe to take to a potluck! A different type of salad, using spaghetti noodles! This recipe originated in Clarksdale, Mississippi and came from a cookbook titled "Family Secrets....the Best of the Delta". It has lots of ingredients, but there is nothing hard about the recipe. Try it!

      What a great salad! I halved the oil and substituted red and yellow peppers for the green; (I did miss the green color). It has great flavor and is better the second day. Thanks for a great everyday recipe!

      Yum, yum, yum!!! This is definately one to make again and again! Because I'm a vegetarian, I used Yves Veggie Ham and Veggie Salami in this, and I also reduced the oil slightly, using around 2/3 cup. I had some baby yellow peppers and 1/2 pint of grape tomatoes, so I used those in here as well. Oh, and I didn't have spaghetti on hand, so I used whole grain fusilli. I agree with TxG, this will be even better tomorrow!!! Thanks so much for sharing, breezermom! Made for PRMR tag.

      This is a keeper, definitely! The dressing is delicious. I tossed in some pepperoni as well. As good as it is today, I think it will be even better tomorrow when the flavors meld. Thanks, Breezermom!
