Spaghetti Squash Salad is a lighter way to do dinner without the carbs.
One of my absolute favorite foods is cooked spaghetti squash. I only recently discovered my love for spaghetti squash a few years ago. Ever since I cook with it regularly. It’s SO healthy and good for you, plus works perfectly in place of pasta.
This dish was completely inspired by what I had on hand. Over the holidays, I had a lot of veggie trays and hated to waste all those veggies, so I used them in several recipes.
I decided to slice up tomatoes, snap peas, onions, and cucumbers for this dish then I mixed it with the spaghetti squash and chicken. Once I added in a dash of garlic and olive oil, it was ready for eating and so delicious. It was light and healthy plus packed with lots of veggies.
