This was very yummy! I eyed the relish and had dill relish so used that instead of cutting up a pickle and used onion powder-i'm sure the crunch would've added like in the celery but any hint of onion and my hubby won't bite! We enjoyed this, thanks for the delicious side!!
Loved this recipe. Used fresh dill instead of dill pickles since I didn't have the pickles. It was great. Enjoyed it for lunch for several days. Will definitely make again.
My nephew went into raptures about this! I have to admit, I liked it quite well, myself! I forgot to put the vinegar in the salad and it was fine, but remembered to put it in when I served it again, and thought that was what put it over the top, for me. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Nimz.
Ok, I wasn't sure about this salad when I first tasted it after it was first tossed together. All I could taste was the cider vinegar. But I put it in the fridge overnight and the next day all the flavors had melded and I could not taste the cider vinegar anymore and it was quite tasty! I really liked the addition of the pickle in there with the tuna. I have never added that to a tuna pasta salad before and I was pleasantly surprised. All I had was dill relish as well, so I put in one heaping tbsp of that in with about a tsp of sugar into the mayo mixture. I would also suggest making sure you use frozen peas. I had to use canned because that was all I had and I didn't like the look or flavor of the canned. I think the frozen would have tasted and looked much much better. I used regular mayo as I did not have light. This was a very good tuna pasta salad! And I am very picky about my tuna! Thanks for posting Nimz!
So tasty, Nimz! I followed this exactly, enjoying each layer of taste, and so lovely to devour. The hard part was just putting a portion on to the plates for our hungry farm hands. They all wanted to more then what I had, so I subbed some extra chips for them. Love the use of dill pickles, as well as the hard boiled eggs, coupled with the sweet pickle relish to made a delight to behold. For us the vinegar was perfect, as I guess we are a vinegar farm here :D Don't hesitate to make this and enjoy the time to rest and reflect back onto a time when you could actually sit and enjoy a meal together. Made for *Potluck* Tag Game Fall 2008
I really enjoyed the taste of this salad. I added only 1tb of vinegar. I felt that the pickles and relish had enough acid and 2tb would just overwhelm the taste (next time I might just even omit the vinegar). I added green onions instead of the sweet onion and added 1/2 tsp each of kosher slat and fresh cracked black pepper. I plan on making this again. Thank you for sharing!
This will be the ONLY Tuna Pasta salad recipe I will ever use. This is perfect! I will eating alot of this on the hot summer days coming up.
Very good tuna pasta salad. I like the addition of cider vinegar. Skipped the pickles and eggs (personal preference) and added a bit more mayo. Measurements of ingredients made a delicious salad.
Great tasting salad! Just the right combination. My DH loved it. Will make many more times. Thanks for posting.
this is a good pasta salad. I made this for DH's work and they devoured it. I like the fact that all the ingredients are in my pantry at any given moment for those last minutes ideas. Thank you for shoring your recipe.
