    spaghetti salad? chunky kind of?
    i have tomatoes/peppers/spring onions from the garden,i also grew cilantro this year .
    was wondering if it would not meld with the italian dressing?

    what do you think? i have a BBQ to go to tonight, was asked to make the salad.

    I'd use lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil with that for dressing. Sounds yum!

    I use salsa for a lot of things...I even make a quick lasagna with it, cooked chicken, cheese and usually one other ingredient from whatever i have on hand like green peppers, mushrooms etc. I think it's great with spaghetti and would be good for spaghetti salad.

    I love salsa on or with about anything. Expecially good on a 'nuked' scrambled egg sitting on top of half a burger bun. I have a small pyrex dish which is the same size as most burger buns so it's a great fit. I agree salsa does wonders for plain boxed mac and cheese. I like to mix up a meatloaf mixture with lots of salsa in it then shaped into tennis ball to baseball sized servings, place in a pyrex pan, top with paper towels and nuke it all for around 4 minutes. I like to keep these in the freezer for a quick snack...with more salsa added for sure. Who wants to waste too much time cooking when you could be working on your quilt projects????

    I add salsa to many things, love it with eggs. It is very good when you mix up a meatloaf to put it in the mixture.

    Try mixing salsa with Ranch Dressing. Yummy and gives your salad a little 'kick'.

    Top fish (tilapia, perch, etc) with salsa and bake....very few calories, no fat and lots and lots of flavor! I especially like the mango and peach salsa from the refrigerated section of our Kroger.

    Salsa, a can of whole kernal corn(drained) and black beans(rinsed) mixed together make a great dip!
