Cooking salad with spaghetti:
Step 1: Cooking Spaghetti.
First, cook the spaghetti. You need to do this in a large pan with plenty of water. Pasta is dipped directly into boiling salted water. Of course, at first they will not fit entirely into the pan, but you do not need to break them, you need to wait until the spaghetti is softened to half, and then carefully push them and lower them into water. Cooking time depends on what is indicated on the packaging of your pasta. And so that they do not boil and then become sour in a salad, take away from the time written in the instructions 30 seconds.
Pour the prepared spaghetti into a colander and wait until excess water drains from them, and they themselves cool and become a little warmer than room temperature.
Step 2: Prepare the tomatoes.
Rinse the tomatoes with warm water, wipe off excess moisture and cut into small pieces.
Step 3: Prepare the onion.
Peel the onion from the husk, while it is most convenient to first divide it into halves. Grind the peeled vegetable by cutting into cubes.
Step 4: Prepare the olives.
Cut olives into small slices or thin strips. And if the ingredients of your choice are small, then simply divide them into halves or quarters.
Step 5: Prepare the greens.
Rinse parsley and chop into small pieces with a knife.
Step 6: We are preparing refueling.
Pour balsamic vinegar into a bowl, then add olive oil there. Thoroughly mix both ingredients with a fork.
Step 7: Cooking Spaghetti Salad
Put the cooled spaghetti in a salad bowl, add dressing to them and mix thoroughly. Then pour tomatoes, dill and olives to the pasta. Stir again and serve the finished dish on the table.
Step 8: Serve Spaghetti Salad.
Serve spaghetti salad both as an independent dish and as a side dish for hot meat or poultry. The dishes prepared according to this recipe look charming on the dining table and add Italian sophistication to your meal.

- Often in this salad add soft cheese or blue cheese. And with grated parmesan it turns out generally delicious!
- If you did not find a cherry tomato on hand, replace them with ordinary ones.
