I have eaten many different types of salad in my life, but this was one that was very different from others. At first I thought I was eating spaghetti with mayonnaise and it was a bit strange. When I asked if this was a spaghetti dish, they told me that this was a side dish or salad. Some people call this pasta salad or spa salad here in Japan. Me and the family enjoys this very much and it was very easy to prepare. I would to share this simple dish. Enjoy
  • ½ Japanese cucumber or small cucumber
  • 1 pkg ham
  • ¼ sliced onions
  • 2 tbsp of Homemade mayonnaise or Japanese mayonnaise (Check homemade mayonnaise recipe here.)
  • 100g of spaghetti
  • salt and pepper (preference)

  1. Get a pot of boiling water ready so that you can put your spaghetti noodles in. When your spaghetti is ready strain and rinse in water and set it aside for a bit.

  3. Next get a mixing bowl, add the spaghetti, onions, cucumbers, ham, and mayonnaise into it and mix well. Finally add salt and pepper. Now your ready to server.
