Hey ya, pals! Happiest of Sundays to you. Should we talk about how it is already May, or do you start hyperventilating, like yours truly, at the thought of how fast life is moving? Geez. Half of 2017 is about to wrap up, people! That’s cah-razy.

Let’s just do our very best to take advantage of the good ol’ summer days ahead of us, try to live in the moment, and enjoy it all with a side of my spaghetti salad, m’kay? 😉

If there could be a salad that was like, all green, red, healthy, and with some olives? But also like a bowl of carbs dotted with an obnoxious amount of feta cheese?  That would be good news. Actually…that would probably be this Spaghetti Salad. So…

Do you notice the olives? Those olives, my dear friends, share a jar together with chopped basil and garlic…

Allow me to introduce you to STAR’s Garlic and Basil Marinated Olives. Zesty and super flavorful, you’ll want to reach for the jar and never put it down. We used these once before in my Skillet Biscuits – those are the same biscuits I don’t make very often because I can’t stop at just one.

But here’s how this easy spaghetti-salad-magic happens.

First, we’re going to start with the spaghetti by dropping them in a pot of water and letting ’em cook.

While they are doing their thing, we’re going to chop up some colorful tomatoes and an English cucumber, empty out a jar of STAR’s olives, and crumble up a handful of feta cheese.

The obvious next step is to now combine all that together, add some STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil over it, then a nice drizzle of STAR’s White Wine Vinegar, and voila!
