How to Make Tuna Macaroni Salad


  1. Cook elbow macaroni as told on the package. Rinse cooked macaroni with cold water.
  2. Chop up and mix all of the other ingredients...You can mix these ingredients as per your taste for them or add another favorite item if desired. I have used the tiny shrimps that come in the cans that are the size of the tuna cans.
  3. After mixing it all up, chill in the fridge for a bit and the dive in...its so yummy!!!
