Spaghetti Lunch Salad

My favorite type of pasta is angel hair, because it's light and airy.  We made some quick pasta the other night, and I am notorious for making far too much.  So, we had a bunch of extra pasta in the fridge and I thought I would make some lunch for the week.  We also had a bunch of veggies that needed to be eaten, so it was the perfect combination.

Spaghetti Lunch Salad


  • 3 cups cooked angel hair pasta
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced 
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, chopped
  • 2 sprigs green onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 cup sliced radishes
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs lemon Mrs. Dash seasoning
  • 1/3 cup drained and chopped black olives
  • 1 tbs hemp seeds per serving (optional)
  • 4 cups baby spinach, rough chopped
  1. Chop all veggies.
  2. Toss everything in a large bowl.
  3. Top with hemp seeds (optional).

Basil wants to help.  She also wants to eat all of the spinach.

This salad makes a healthy, tasty, and filling lunch or dinner.  I brought it to work with a side of fruit, and it made me very happy.  You can experiment with different veggies you have in the fridge.  Get creative!
