"This macaroni salad is great for lunch on its own, if you don't feel like cooking on those hot summer days. It's also a wonderful side for grilled food. I have perfected it -- after making many different types of macaroni salad, this one is my favorite. Enjoy!!"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Transfer the macaroni to a bowl, and cool in the refrigerator.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly toss the tuna with celery, onion, and about 1 cup mayonnaise until combined, then stir in the remaining mayonnaise, macaroni, olives, and grape tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let the salad chill in refrigerator 1 hour.

This is from the author of the recipe, I think that maybe 1 and 1/2 cups to 2 cups of mayonnaise may be enough, depending on how you like it.

Changed this recipe a tad. I added Black olive and substituted Spiral for Macaroni! I also added some Garlic Salt for taste. It was a little bland without. My family Loved it! I could of add...

Very tasty! The green olives and pimientos really make the dish.

This would have been a great salad, however two cups of mayonnaise is way, way too much. This much mayo ruins this which has great potential. Try it with 1/2 cup instead...

I have always liked this salad, i add cucumbers to mine, though, delicious!

I love this dish,and this chef!
