Tuna Tarragon Salad (Sweet Tomatoes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by christytownshend

This is the exact recipe for Sweet Tomatoes/Soup Plantation's Salad. I go there as often as possible for this salad. Finally learned how to make it myself. Word to the wise, DO NOT TASTE IT BEFORE THE 8 HOURS OR IT WON'T TASTE RIGHT. Trust me, its worth the wait!

This recipe is perfect. I didn't think it was too pickle-y at all. Tastes exactly like what I remember from Sweet Tomatoes. Thank you so much for posting it!

  1. For the pasta: In a large pot, bring 3 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon salt to a full boil. Add pastas and cook for about 10 minutes until al dente. Immediately strain pasta and cool by running cold water over pasta in strainer. Drain pasta completely and place in a bowl. Coat pasta with canola oil to prevent sticking.

  3. Combine the dressing and cooked pasta and mix thoroughly. ALLOW SALAD TO MARINATE FOR 8 HOURS! After 8 hours, top with more pickle juice and salt and pepper to taste.
