Spaghetti Salad

This salad is always a favorite to have on hand and serve at lunch to the Beach Watchers during the annual FOCIP Education Days which occur in May at the Camano Island Boat Ramp.

Because it can be made ahead, it saves the day for me. (I also use it to bribe one of the Beach Watchers, who loves the salad, to help get the critters from the divers and then return them to the water at the end of the day.)

The recipe was from one of my sisters who got it from a friend, who got it from her cousin, who got it from .... So, you can see, it is a favorite with a number of people.
