Luby's Cafeteria Spaghetti Salad

Total Time

A copy cat recipe. I haven't tried this one yet. Although at the 4-H District Speech Supper last year, one lady brought a salad similar to this one, but without the cucumbers in it. A person could change the kind of veggies, and probably half the recipe for your family.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  2. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain well.
  3. Transfer to large bowl.
  4. In medium bowl, whisk together salad dressing, cheese, seeds, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and peppers until well blended.

  6. Pour over spaghetti and toss lightly to coat evenly.

I make this salad quite often. It's delicious and very easy to make. It makes a lot, but will keep in fridge for days and it just gets better with age. Btw, it's not a copy cat recipe, It's straight from Luby's own cook book.
