Macaroni Tuna Salad #OurFamilyTable

Perfect as a light meal or a side dish this Macaroni Tuna Salad is perfect for summertime and easily made from items you probably have on hand.


The From Our Dinner Table Group is cooking with Pantry Staples today.......


This pandemic might have slowed for a while but now it seems to be rearing it's ugly head again.  I did let down my guard a bit as far as having family and friends over to the house but I have still been limiting shopping trips and masking up when I do have to go to the store.


So when the ladies of From Our Dinner Table Group announced the theme, I was happy to make a dish without a trip to the store.

Let's see what the others found to make from their pantries........

  1. This is almost the same way I made this dish for my kids when they were growing up, minus the celery, and with mayo instead of miracle whip. They LOVED it and requested it two or three times a month.

  2. My son and I would love this, I'll have to make it when Dad has to work (he hates tuna).

    1. I know your pain Audrey, my husband hates tuna too. I only get tuna casserole once in a blue moon anymore.

  3. I made a tuna macaroni salad years ago and it was so good but I lost the recipe. I need to try this for this week when it's going to be so stinking hot!

  5. That's one of my favorite salads. We ate a lot of that in college because it was budget friendly and delicious.
