16 ounces vermicelli or spaghetti pasta 1 bottle (16 ounce size) Italian salad dressing 1 large red onion, chopped 2 tomatoes, diced 1 large cucumber, diced 1 jar (2.75 ounce size) "McCormicks" brand "Salad Supreme" salad seasoning
Cook pasta according to directions, drain, rinse well with cold water until cool, make sure to drain well. Put pasta into large bowl. Immediately add the remaining ingredients and mix well to avoid pasta from sticking together.
When adding pasta to boiling water, break into thirds. Do not over-cook pasta. You can usually find McCormick's Salad Supreme anywhere they sell McCormick's brand spices. You can substitute any salad topping but make sure to use the entire jar.
If I'm making this for a group with kids I make it as directed but if it's just grownups eating it then I add some diced jalapeno or use a can of diced tomatoes with chiles in it instead of the fresh.

Tried this recipe for a Wings & Wine gathering at my home this evening and it was Awesome! Granted the gathering didn't call for a pasta salad, I just felt like something was missing...and this was the ticket!!!
Thank you for sharing!!!

I made this for an office party, and got a lot of great comments on it. It was easy to make and convenient since it needs to be made the day before. I was tempted to not put in all of the Salad Supreme (it seemed like a lot) but was glad I did - it wouldn't have been as good without it.

This salad was SO GOOD! Very easy to make. I added slightly steamed broccoli flowerets and asparagus tips. I searved this at my daughters bridal shower and it was a hit!
