    Tropical Texan's Note:

    My own recipe for a delicious, cold salad made with multicolored rotini, canned tuna, onions, celery and carrots. It's wonderful in the summer as a light dinner served with blueberry or pineapple muffins. The secret is to used canned tuna in vegetable oil rather than water--it makes a more moist, delicate salad overall.

      This is a delicious salad! I have made it just as written & I made it when I have added other vegetables, such as diced bell peppers. This makes a fast, light supper!
