Tuna macaroni salad is fast, healthy, easy, and delicious. It makes an excellent side dish, light lunch, or a snack. Of course, many of the ingredients can be adjusted according to your taste. The tuna you use is entirely your choice. We usually use a light Starkist light tuna in water. This is a nice, dry, and fluffy tuna. The amount and type of mayonnaise is entirely optional, as well. We like the sweeter Kraft Miracle Whip. We use cheddar old cheese, as this provides a sharp and zesty taste. But again, it’s totally your call.
Try this dish today. It is great for picnics, festivals, and family gathering. We are sure you will enjoy it.
