Macaroni Salad

Even though I refer to this recipe as Macaroni Salad, I don't actually use macaroni..haha.. usually I use shells or rotini. Everyone has their own recipe for this, I thought I would share mine with you!  A very yummy and popular summer salad.  Also great with ham dinners, steak, hot dogs and burgers or on it's own for lunch!


Step 1:
Boil the short pasta noodle of your choice, drain and then run cold water over it - both so it won't stick together and to cool it down.

Step 2:
In a bowl combine:
  • cooked pasta
  • 1 can of drained tuna
  • shredded cheese
  • chopped red onion
  • enough mayo or miracle whip to coat
  • a bit of salt
Step 3:
Cover and refridgerate for a couple hours before serving.

Family Thoughts:


Everyone loves this, even the kids!  Easy to make and take to BBQ's and pot lucks.  How do you make your macaroni salad?


  1. I'm not a fish person, but I do love creamy pasta salad!

  2. I make this but with canned salmon.

  3. i mix 1/4 cup miracle whip and 1/4 cup kraft zesty italian dressing
