The trick of this Greek spaghetti squash salad is to make the marinated onions and allow them to work their magic while the spaghetti squash cooks! The dressing for this pasta salad comes from the oil and vinegar that the onions marinate in.

How to make marinated onions

Marinating onions helps to take out the bitter punch from the onions and makes them almost sweet and the perfect addition to any salad! I use equal parts olive oil and red wine vinegar and add in salt and dried oregano.

In a bowl combine equal parts olive oil and red wine vinegar (3 tablespoons of each). Add in 1 tsp dried oregano and ½ teaspoon of salt.

Thinly slice 1/2 of a red onion. Add the red onion slices to the olive oil and red wine vinegar mixture. Allow the onions to marinate while the spaghetti squash is cooking.
