Greek-style Spaghetti Squash Salad

This is another cool one to make for those of us living in the very steamy 
midwest.  I've found a great way to cook the spaghetti squash without heating 
up the house- Pierce it, put it in the microwave for 10 minutes, turn it over 
and let it cook for another 5 minutes.  Let it cool to room temp (in the 
microwave), put it in a baggie in the refrigerator overnight. It is really 
easy to work with when it is cool.
