Tuna Macaroni Salad

"I no longer get asked to make this salad, its DEMANDED whenever theres a party. The amounts listed are for a family of 4 that will last a couple of days, but increase as much as you want for the summer get-togethers. DO NOT LEAVE OUT THE GREEN PEPPER, if you don't like them, pick around them, they really do make or break this recipe!"

    Yummy! I loved that there is a nice amount of eggs in this salad. I omly used 1 tsp of paprika and used real mayo. It was wonderful. Thanx!

    I made this salad this morning. Had it for dinner and it is wonderful!! When I made it I was concerned about using so much paprika.Don't use that spice much. I think it is funny when people make a recipe and review it saying they did it just as listed EXCEPT......and then list all their changes. Followed the recipe and am glad I did as it is delicious. Thanks for a great salad.

    HI Susie- This must be a WNY deal as I make the same way. This recipe is demanded of me at all family functions as well. I do add 2 cans tuna as that too is demanded. Great to see another WNYer here. Welcome.


I'm the mother of 3 grown children (25,22,21) and a 4 year old grandson. I work at our local supermarket in the seafood section..thats how I got here! Really don't know how to cook seafood (other than salmon). Anyway, now I can't wait to try so many other things! I love cooking on my charcoal grill and doing the big party/holiday thing! I live in Western NY, and cookout as long as weather permits! Unfortunately now its just the two of us, and I don't cook that much anymore, really need to find recipes for 2!
