High school recipe for Foods III, senior class. When Salmon was about the same price as Tuna. I love to play with this salad, adding other things and trying new herbs. But this is the "Original" version.

  1. Cook Macaroni as directed in salted water. Drain macaroni and cool under very cold running water. Shake as much water off as possible before making salad.
  2. While cooking pasta, chop and prepare all other ingredients.
  3. Combine all ingredients and toss lightly to blend.
  4. Serve on lettuce cups and garnish with chopped parsley and /or paprika.
  5. I just love the Directions. So Gourmet don't you think?
