This is my go-to tuna pasta salad recipe. I make it so much I don't even check the recipe anymore and I just eyeball everything! The balance of the flavors is soo good. I don't add celery, shallot, or peppers because I just don't prefer them in my pasta salad and this still turns out so delicious. I take it to potlucks all the time and it's always a hit. Give it a try!!

Directions

  1. Prepare macaroni or pasta as directed on package. Combine mayonnaise, Italian dressing, mustard, and dill. Add pasta to dressing and mix well. Place vegetables and tuna in salad bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add pasta and dressing mixture and toss all ingredients gently. Refrigerate, covered, at least 4 hours before serving.
  2. NOTES: Good Seasons Italian salad dressing makes an easy, wonderful marinade for chicken on the grill. Place chicken pieces in Ziploc bag with ½ cup salad dressing for at least one hour. Be careful, remembering that the dressing is made with salad oil and will flare up at first as the oil ignites. It can also be used dry as a rub.
  3. Good Seasons salad dressing is becoming harder to find as Kraft Foods moves toward higher end premium dressings.
