Great tuna macaroni salad. I liked that it doesn't call for tons of mayonnaise, which doesn't make it any less tasty. It does turn out somewhat dry, but I simply stirred in a little fat free milk. The hot sauce and lemon juice added a nice subtle flavor. Thanx for a terrific cold salad!

This is a terrific main-dish-salad! Yummy and filling! I thought it was going to be too much tuna and egg, but it was just right. Also, I made some substitutions...instead of seasoning salt I used generous dill weed. I probably went a bit light on the cayenne pepper (instead of hot sauce). I may have used more lemon and garlic than was called for; I just kept adding until the flavor was balanced and nice. Also, I added much, much, much more mayonnaise than was called for (we don't believe in the low-fat craze!). My only complaint that it was so hard to find this recipe because of the name, but thank goodness I did find it! This is a keeper!!!

I halved this and used just one 4.5 oz can of tuna. Because I dislike celery I added some baby orange bell pepper in its place and because the only regular onion I had was frozen, I used green onion. Initially I found the salad a little dry but a couple more Tbsp of mayo and a bit more lemon juice took care of that. Love the subtle kick from the Frank's hot sauce (I used a few extra dashes cause I love that stuff LOL)! Thanks for sharing!

This is a great salad! I fixed it for myself and friends everybody just loved it .I also used a whole wheat pasta instead of the regular pasta.

Memories from my childhood. This is how my Dad always liked his macaroni salad. I may have been a little heavy on the red hot but I like it hot! Thanks for the memories.

We just ate this for lunch and it was a big hit! I used penne pasta and only two cans of tuna. Also we were too hungry to cook hardboiled eggs so we skipped them this time. Definitely going to put them in next time. We put in 2 teaspoons of pickle relish and 1 of onion relish and that added a nice zip.

This was a really good tasting pasta salad with lots of flavor. The lemon juice, hot sauce and seasonings really tasted wonderful together. The only change I made was using dill relish instead of sweet relish due to personal preference. Thanks for submitting the recipe kolleen!
