Whether as a light lunch, summer dinner or quick pasta salad for a picnic or barbecue, this tuna pasta salad couldn't be yummier or easier to put together. Simply mix tinned tuna with cooked macaroni, mayonnaise, onion, seasoning and herbs; chill, and you're ready to go!
Growing up, my mom made this for us all the time and now I make it for my family. You can add anything you like to this recipe. Sometimes I add celery or chopped green pepper. When my salad is completed I usually serve it on a large bed of lettuce. I slice hard boiled eggs and tomato and place on and around the salad. Makes a pretty presentation for a very simple yet delicious and easy meal. For those of you who like a little zip, have a bottle of hot sauce at the table to sprinkle on the salad! - 20 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very Good & Very Easy! My whole family loves it! I used the pasta "shells" instead of macaroni.It is good warm or cold! My husband likes it with peas in it too! Definately making this again & again! - 19 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for a party and since I'm all about presentation, I made a few modifications. I only used one can of tuna and I used plenty more than 1/4 cup of Miracle Whip. I threw in some thawed frozen peas and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. It looked quite yummy and I had several people comment that it was just like their mom used to make! I didn't really try it since I added those other things. I'll have to make a version again with just the tuna, macaroni, and Miracle Whip for my plain palate. - 04 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
