Traditionally, when you think of soup, you think of a hot and savory dish best served to warm you up in the winter. This recipe for Cold Spaghetti Soup offers the opposite effects for a healthy and hearty way to cool off on those hot summer days. It takes an hour to prepare this dish for four. Ingredients include spaghetti noodles, sliced cucumber, sliced purple onion, sliced tomatoes, chopped coriander, tomato juice, and Italian salad dressing.


  • 1 package spaghetti
  • 1/2 cucumber (sliced)
  • 1 red onion (sliced in rings)
  • 2 tomatoes (small, sliced)
  • coriander (Chopped, as desired)
  • 500 milliliters tomato juice
  • 250 milliliters italian dressing


  1. Place the red onion in a small bowl with cold water and salt. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Break the spaghetti into 4 or 5 parts.
  3. Heat water in a cooking pot until it boils and put the spaghetti in it. Let it cook for 7 minutes.
  4. Strain the spaghetti and soak it with cold water. Store it in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or 30 minutes in the freezer.
  5. Mix the spaghetti, cucumber, red onion, tomato, coriander, tomato juice, and italian dressing in a large bowl.
  6. Serve cold with avocado or shrimp as side dish.

This was very good. It was refreshing and made a great option to serve for a light lunch with some freshly baked bread and avocado on the side. I will definitely make this again.
