  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cucumber small, sliced
  • 1 red onion small, sliced
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives pitted and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup parsley fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground


  • Cut the squash in half and brush with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Lay cut side down in a microwavable safe dish with a lid. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Check to see if the squash is tender, and rotate. Cook for about 5 more minutes and remove. Let cool and use a fork to scrape the “noodles” into a bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and toss well. Chill until ready to serve.
