Storing: Stored properly, this spaghetti salad should last for about 5 days in your refrigerator. Place it in an airtight container or a large zip-top food storage bag, for best results.
Swap Pastas: If you don't have spaghetti, you can change it up and use linguine instead, for a similar texture that's super satisfying.
Add Protein: You can add pepperoni or summer sausage to this salad to make It even heartier.
Make It Ahead: This can be made a day or two in advance and stored in the refrigerator. If I make it ahead, I like to add half of the salad dressing before putting it in the fridge, and save the second half of the salad dressing to add right before I serve it.
