Mmm... this is a very tasty salad. I used green chiles instead of jalapenos to adjust down the heat. I'll bet pickled pepperoncinis would also be great in this dish. I might cut back on the noodles a bit next time, to make it creamier. But overall this made a great picnic lunch. Thanks, SweetySJD [Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup]
Except for the fact that I substituted green chilies for the jalapenos, I followed your recipe right on down, & we had a great tasting tuna salad! Definitely nice enough to make again especially during the hot summer months here in the high dessert! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag]
What a great idea! Jalapenos! But I don't like that much heat, so used pickled jalapenos, instead. Came out great tasting. Used elbows, as I was out of shells. Don't think it made much difference, do you? Thnx for sharing your recipe, Sweety. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
Good salad; however I made some changes to suit my tastes. I used rainbow rotelle that added some nice color to the salad. I doubled the amount of mayonnaise because I like a more creamy salad. I only added half the amount of jalapenos, deciding I would taste it first and then add the rest if I needed to. I'm so glad I held back because this salad was FIERY HOT to my tastebuds with only half the amount of jalapenos.
This was so delicious! It combined the tangy flavor you get with olives with the bite of jalapenos. I omitted the pasta and had on a wheat bun. Thanks SweetySJD, for posting. Roxygirl
This is a very nice salad. I love the addition of jalapenos. Wouldn't have thought of doing that. Followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of the pasta, for which I used No-Yolk Noodles, and added some red pepper flakes. Thanks Sweety for a great recipe.
Delicious, and so easy to prepare. I loved the jalapenos in this dish, as they added just the right amount of flavor. I was out of shell pasta so I used farfalle. DS thought this was great too. Thanks for posting! Nick's Mom
This is a keeper! and with the low fat and sugar content I feel good about enjoying it. This is the fist time I have added jalapenos to tuna salad, it's an excellent kick. I put a scoop on mixed baby lettuce and had a marvelous lunch. Very easy to put together. Just mix it up in the morning and slide it into the fridge and lunch is ready when you are.
We absolutely loved this!!! So easy to make and tastes wonderful. I couldn't wait for the 2 hours chilling time and ate it warm. This would be great for a potluck. Thank you Sweety for posting this recipe.
