My Macaroni & Tuna Salad

9 Aug

It has been a long, hot summer here in North Carolina and I have been trying to avoid using my oven, I have resorted to my salad arsenal to get us through until things cool off. So, why was I surprised when my ten-year-old son, B3, asked the other day, “Mom, may we have some of the tuna stuff with macaroni?” He was referring to my macaroni & tuna salad, which is usually reserved for summertime cookouts. So, I shrug my shoulders and say, “Yeah, Macaroni & Tuna Salad, that sounds good.” I cannot take credit for this recipe, my Aunt Wendy makes the best mac & tuna salad, so I stole here recipe years ago and made it my own.

Macaroni & Tuna Salad

 

Recipe 

1 box Elbow macaroni

2 can tuna, drained

1/2 cup sweet pickle relish

1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

3 tablespoon mustard

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

 

The Verdict 

My family and I love Macaroni & Tuna Salad on a summer day. It is perfect as a side dish with hamburger or fried chicken. Although in my house, you are just as likely to find one of us eating a large serving of Macaroni & Tuna Salad all by itself, and probably out of a cereal bowl!
