Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Soak red onion in a bowl of ice water in refrigerator to remove strong taste, at least 30 minutes. Drain and rinse.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain and rinse under cold water.
  3. Mix onion, pasta, tuna, celery, roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, parsley, basil, capers, and Greek dressing together in a large bowl. Allow to marinate in refrigerator, 4 hours to overnight.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The dressing really makes this pasta salad. Ideally it should be a bright, lemony dressing, preferably homemade though bottled plus some extra fresh-squeezed lemon juice would also work. I have served this as a side dish and also as a main dish, adding another can of tuna. This salad is good with limeade and lemonade. Baklava or lemon bars make a stellar dessert.

Great salad. A little more involved and expensive to make than my usual tuna pasta salad, but worth the money and effort. I used regular rotini, added some green olives, and used one recipe o...

Souvlaki: on a stick. Otherwise good salad-- would add kalamata olives
