Very good salad! I used miracle whip, so didn't add the sugar. I added 1/2 of a chopped bell pepper, I used peas instead lima beans and I used the juice of a whole lemon. This will be made again and again. I usually did my tuna pasta like this, but never added eggs before or paprika. EXCELLENT!

I omitted the eggs and the red peppers and doubled the seasoning, but this just seemed bland to me.

We made this for a Canada Day picnic and it was a hit all around. I did follow the suggestions and used sweetlet peas instead of lima beans and that worked very well for us. The salad held up well, was tasty and filling. Will make it again for certain!

I've made this several times, but the way it stands, this is much too bland. I modify it as follows: 1 cup frozen peas instead of the lima beans, a 4 oz. jar of diced pimentos instead of roasted red pepper (drained), 1 cup of cheese instead of 3/4 cup, 1 cup chopped celery instead of 3/4 cup, 1/2 cup chopped onion instead of 1/4 cup. But the real way to amp this up is by modding the dressing! 1 and 1/4 cup mayonnaise, juice of 1 and 1/2 lemons, 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp black pepper, 2 tsp paprika, 2 tsp salt. This is to die for!!!

I've made this several times! My family loves it. I use peas instead of lima beans also. I'm copying ingredients right now to make ahead and serve for our first night camping this weekend! Sorry for the hurricanes, but thanks for the awesome recipe!

This was really easy and simple to make and surprisingly tasty. I think the secret ingredient is the cheese. I also used the frozen peas and just regular uncooked red pepper chopped up. Thanks for posting.

I have made this 4 times now and it is great every time. I have never made it with the lima beans, I usually just replace with peas. I put the cheddar cheese in a seperate container so it is optional. My 2 year old likes it and my husband, too!

This was yummy! I used frozen peas (personal preference), two cans of tuna and gluten-free pasta and it turned out great. We will be making this again!

I was skeptical at first, but this is truly a 5 star recipe. The only alteration I made was to use cooked frozen peas instead of the Lima Beans because that is what I had on hand. All-in-all, a perfect tuna/pasta salad! Thanks for posting!
