Recipe by Leona
This salad is great as a side dish or by itself! Great for picnics and special occasions as well. This dish is so simple yet so good. This has to be one of my favorites! I estimated on the amount of seasonings and miracle whip i usually just add it to taste. So make sure you taste it before chilling and add more if you would like!
- 1 (6 ounce) can tuna
- 1 large sweet onion
- 1 (16 ounce) box elbow macaroni (bow ties for special occasions)
- 4 tablespoons Miracle Whip (add more if desired)
- 1 teaspoon season salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 (1 lb) bag baby carrots
- 1 cup celery, chopped (optional)
- 1 cup assorted cubed cheese (optional)
