How to Make Best Tuna Pasta Salad


  • 1Cook your pasta al dente while prepping the rest of your ingredients. Drain. No need to cool before mixing in your ingredients, either.
  • 2Mix all the ingredients in the biggest bowl you can find, including the salt and pepper to taste. Then add some more pepper and mix again!
  • 3Chill at least 2 hours, but overnight is best. Because the dressings tend to tighten up a bit as the salad sits, you may need to add a bit more mayo/Miracle Whip just before serving. Enjoy!
