Macaroni Tuna Salad

Macaroni Tuna Salad

Sally Rogers

"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!!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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!
