Ten Minute Tuna Pasta Salad!

Ten Minute Tuna Pasta Salad!

 

Tonight I thought that I would share with you one of my favorite, go-to side dishes… Tuna Pasta Salad! The best part about this salad is that it can easily be ready in just ten minutes!

 

Summer is finally here! BBQ’s and summer get-together’s are in the air!

 

This salad always knows how to get me out of a jam when I come home late from work and have to be somewhere ASAP.

 

This pasta salad is also always there for me when I forget to plan out dinner and need something quick and tasty.

 

If salads could be besties… than this one would be mine!

 


 

All you need is:

  • 1/2 a bag of Pasta (I prefer small shells for this pasta, but just about any type will do!)
  • 1 can of Tuna
  • 1/4 cup of chopped Green or Regular Onions (Whichever you have on hand!)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped Celery
  • 2/3 cup of Mayo
  • 6 dashes of Hot Sauce
  • Pepper

 


 

Step One: The very first thing I do in order to get the ball rolling for this pasta is get my water boiling, and my pasta on.

 


 

Step Two: While the pasta is cooking, I take full advantage of the time, and get my veggies (onions and celery), all chopped up and into a big bowl.

 


 

Step Three: Next I drain my can of tuna, and then add it to my big bowl.

 


 

Step Four: I then throw in my mayo and hot sauce. My favorite mayo to use is Hellman’s because I love “salty”, but any type of mayo will work!

 


 

Step Five: As soon as my pasta is soft, I then pour it into a big strainer. I usually let my pasta cook for about 7 minutes, but you can check your packaging for exact timing!

 


 

Step Six: I run cold water all over my pasta, and stir it with a spoon while doing so. This really helps it cool down fast…. A great trick for when you are always late like me, or just in a huge hurry!

 


 

Step Seven: After your pasta is cool and drained, add it into the big bowl and mix, mix, mix!

 


 

Step Eight: Place pasta into your favorite serving dish, garnish with celery leaves, sprinkle with pepper, and enjoy!

 


 

Tip: This salad keeps very well if you wanted to make it a day ahead, or eat the yummy leftovers for lunch the next day!
