Tuna pasta salad is a popular dish made by combining cooked pasta with canned tuna and a variety of other ingredients. The salad is typically served cold and is a great option for a quick and easy lunch or dinner.
To make tuna pasta salad, you will need cooked pasta of your choice, canned tuna, and a selection of vegetables, such as diced celery, chopped onions, and sliced cherry tomatoes. You can also add other ingredients like diced bell peppers, shredded carrots, and sliced cucumbers for extra crunch and flavor.
For the dressing, a simple combination of mayonnaise, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard is a classic choice. However, you can also use other dressings such as Italian dressing, vinaigrette, or even pesto sauce for a different twist.
To assemble the salad, toss the cooked pasta with the tuna, vegetables, and dressing until everything is well coated. Serve chilled and garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or basil, if desired.
