Healthy Tuna Macaroni Salad Recipe


This tuna salad is an interesting twist on plain old macaroni salad. By adding tuna and eggs, it becomes more then the average, mayonnaise heavy, stand by featured at every backyard barbeque.

This healthy recipe for macaroni salad is hearty enough to be a meal all on it’s own. Served with iced, unsweetened tea, it’s a perfect warm weather meal...there’s nothing like a cold pasta salad when the temperature is soaring.
