Easy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

I am one of those people who love tuna fish and eat it at least once a week. With that said, I have to have the tuna mixed up in a variety of different recipes so that I don't get bored with it. Tuna sandwiches, cold pasta salads, hot tuna casseroles and more...are all on my menu with it comes to tuna!

Today I am sharing with all of you this very easy recipe to make a cold pasta salad.

Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

1 pouch or can of Albacore tuna, liquid drained
12 oz. cooked and drained pasta
1/8 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1 1/8 cup frozen peas, drained and thawed
1 1/2 cups reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon dill pickle juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon parsley

In a large bowl gently toss together all of the ingredients listed above. You may need to increase the amount of mayonnaise that you use...depending on the type of pasta used and how much mayonnaise that pasta soaks up. Every time I make this recipe, I have to adjust it.

Once everything is combined, cover the bowl and place it into the refrigerator for 3-4 hours to allow all flavors to fuse together. When you are ready to serve, stir everything completely and then serve.

I like the addition of peas to this recipe, and I would probably also add red pepper for taste and color. Thanks for the recipe.
