I like this recipe because it is very yummy. I learned how to make this recipe from my mother growing up. We like to eat it with toast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil macaroni and peas until tender to your liking.
  2. In a bowl put the macaroni and pea mixture.
  3. Add tuna and cheese. I usually cut the cheese into chunks but can cut it up how you want.
  4. Add mayo or mayonnaise to your liking.
  5. Refrigerate until cold. I usually refrigerate for about 2 hours.

I did add a couple of things while making this recipe ~ I used 1 can of albacore tuna & a bit larger amount of canned chicken breast, then also added several tablespoons of honey Dijon mustard with the mayo! Oh, yes, I also just barely steamed the peas since I'd be happy to eat them raw, while my other half prefers them a little bit cooked! Anyway, however it's done, this keeper of a recipe makes for a VERY TASTY MAC SALAD! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
