    shells75's Note:

    After discovering this recipe I never make macaroni salad any other way. I sometimes used canned white chicken. After reading the comments on the dill I want to mention that the original recipe called called for 3 tablespoons of dried dill! Can you imagine.....I would change the name to dill salad!

    1. 1
      Cook pasta according to directions.
    2. 2
      Put frozen peas in colander and drain pasta over peas.
    3. 3
      In large bowl mix mayonnaise and vinegar.
    4. 4
      Add pasta and peas and mix well.
    5. 5
      Add remaining ingredients mixing well.
    6. 6
      Taste to adjust seasonings.
    7. 7
      Place in fridge for flavors to blend (or eat as is if you can't wait).
    8. 8
      You might want to add additional mayonnaise after salad has been refrigerated, because some of the mayonnaise will "soak" into pasta.
    9. 9
      *This is the amount of vinegar the original recipe calls for -- I have been cutting down to one tablespoon.

      I love this recipe. It reminded me of my mother's macaroni and tuna salad, which she always made with the little shells. I wish I could say I made it exactly as the recipe said, but I can't. I only used one 6 ounce can of tuna, I replaced the vinegar with lemon juice and used only a sprinkle of dill. I may have used less mayonnaise, but I didn't measure it so I can't be sure. Just stirred it in until it looked right. For company, I'd probably add one or two hard-cooked eggs and a sprinkle of paprika to garnish.

      My bf has been hounding me to make this. I added to it. I used 2 hb eggs and a little grated cheddar. It still had plenty of sauce after I added that. I used 1/2 TBS dill and peas out of a can. I also used red onion instead. It was delish!

      This is the way I always knew Tuna Macaroni Salad to be made and its good but I found it to be just a little more on the "dill" side than we like. Next time I will cut the dill down a bit.
