Cool spaghetti salad.

1/2 pound dried spaghetti

1 medium-size (about 3/4-lb.) cucumber, peeled and chopped

1 cup each thinly sliced carrot and celery

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro (coriander) leaves

Dill sauce (recipe follows)

Fresh cilantro sprigs

2 green onions, ends trimmed (optional)

Salt and pepper

In a 4- to 5-quart pan, bring about 2 quarts water to boiling over high heat. Break spaghetti into thirds; add to water. Cook, uncovered, just until tender to bite, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta, immerse in cold water until cool, then drain well and pour into a wide bowl.

To bowl, add cucumber, carrot, celery, sliced onions, minced cilantro, and dill sauce; mix gently. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and whole onions. Serve, or cover and chill up to 4 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serves 6.
