A simple salad that makes a great lunch or light dinner, tuna and pasta is combined with peas, hard-boiled eggs and mayonnaise.
This was a very good starter recipe but it definitely needs a few extra ingredients to make it yummy! I omitted the peas and added diced celery, green onions, cubed cheddar cheese, and sweet relish. It needed a lot of seasoning and I used mayo, horseradish sauce, seasoning salt, garlic salt and pepper. With all the additions it turned out great! - 14 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Since there are only 2 of us now..we use 1 drained can GOOD quality Albacore tuna in water, 1cup dry small shell pasta cooked and drained. Add a couple of dashes of dill weed,salt, pepper, and if desired dry minced onion or onion powder to taste, only one diced egg, 1 or 2 stalks of celery thinly sliced,(taste and adjust Mayo and seasonings) 1/2 cup cubed mild cheddar cheese, and 1/2 can drained canned peas (or 1 cup frozen peas cooked,drained and cooled)..have to fold in gently after it's all mixed well. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. - 11 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was a good salad, however it really needs the celery and green onions for texture and flavor. I felt the dressing needed something, so I added 3T of bottled Caesar dressing and a teaspoon of prepared horseradish sauce. Thanks Ann. - 08 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
