Ingredients for BBQ Pasta Salad with Tuna:
- 1 cup celery chopped
- 1.5 cup cucumber skinned and chopped
- 1 cup red pepper chopped
- .5 cup carrots shredded
- 6 hard boiled eggs shelled and chopped
- 1 box macaroni
- 1 can tuna
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 C mayo Adjust to taste
Optional: salt and pepper to taste
Directions for making Macaroni Salad with Tuna:
Boil pasta and let cool. I add ice to the colander after it's cooked, while I'm making the rest of the salad.
Chop your veggies and eggs while pasta is cooling.
Mash up the tuna into smaller chunks
Add pasta, mustard and 1/2C mayo to bowl. Add tuna, veggies, and eggs. Add mayo in 1/4C increments until you're satisfied with the consistency. This salad tastes best when allowed to sit overnight before serving. You'll probably need to add mayo to salad before serving.
