A tasty tuna salad which is easy to prepare. I frequently make it during the Summer for a light supper, after a day at the pool. Also works well for picnics. Amounts given are estimates, I usually prepare this "by taste".

This was a delicious light supper! I left out the onions and the pepper as DH was out of town and he is the onion and pepper guy. I added a few grape tomatoes cut in half for a little color and there you have it!! A beautiful salad fit for a queen! Thank you for a new summertime favorite, Dee!

Made this salad with rotini pasta, and green onions instead of vidalia. Fantastic,quick,easy and wonderful to have on a hot day.I served it with an assortment of cold meats, bread, lettuce and tomatoes.

This is a good dinner for a hot summer day! The only thing I did differently was to add half a tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning to the mayonnaise to spice it up a little, and I used radiatori pasta for a little extra texture. It was excellent. Thanks for this recipe, dee, it's a keeper! :o)
