A great summertime side dish...my mom and I were reflecting on where in the world this recipe came from---my dad made it for me as a child, and it's so perfect, I never could face to mess with changing it! I've seen some close variations, but this is my all-time favorite!! Even my hubby who hates olives loves this!!

Directions

  1. Boil pasta until slightly undercooked (should still have a slight bite to it!) Be sure to completely chill elbows before adding to mixture.
  2. Drain and flake tuna in bowl, add celery and sliced olives.
  3. Add Miracle Whip and season with Nature's Seasoning to desired taste----season carefully as olives add quite a bit of saltiness!
  4. Cover and chill for 45 minutes to meld flavors!
  5. Great with burgers, brats, any summertime favorite or with a simple friut salad as a main dish!
