Tuna Mac

Linda Griffith


This is a wonderful recipe when the weather is hot and you don't want to heat up the kitchen or you wont something simple ad refreshing. I got this recipe over 35 years ago when we lived in South Dade, Florida, where it stayed hot all year. It has become a favorite over the years and I am pleased to share it with you. Hope you enjoy..
