Tuna Piccadilly with Creamy Italian Spaghetti Slaw

Barbara Miller


This recipe might sound a bit odd but it is delicious and nutritious. I've been trying to include more tuna in our diet. If you just can't do tuna .... I also make this with sauteed, cooled, ground chicken or turkey (one pound). Dice the chicken fine with a meat muddler/chopper as it cooks. Either recipe prep is a fav at our house.The cook time does not include the time needed to cool in the fridge. I have eaten this warm but I prefer it chilled and leftover is even better. This can be served as a side dish with just the slaw, pasta, dressing and cheese. I hope you enjoy it.

How to Make Tuna Piccadilly with Creamy Italian Spaghetti Slaw


  1. Break spaghetti into approximately 1-2 inch pieces. Cook spaghetti according to pkg directions. Drain.
  2. In a large bowl or container, toss slaw mix, cooked spaghetti, cheese and salad dressing.
  3. Toss in the tuna with the liquid from the can.
  4. Toss in the sweet relish and any juice that you spoon out of the jar with it. Picadilly is hot and sweet so dill pickles won't do. You can use chopped whole sweet pickles with a tsp of the juice..
  5. Toss in the Chow Chow. If you can't find this ingredient you can use salsa (medium or hot).
  6. Add the jalapeno peppers.
  7. Toss well. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Toss before serving. Keeps for at least 3 days in the fridge. If it seems too dry or if you want it a bit creamier toss with up to 6 TBSP water. The pasta will absorb some of the liquid as it sits in the fridge.
