We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound twist pasta
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (12-ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, and pepper; mix well. Add pasta and remaining ingredients. Toss until well combined; cover, and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

We have a lot of pasta salad and macaroni salad at my house during the summer, so I am happy I found a recipe that also adds tuna. This recipe will be a great side dish with burgers on the grill and baked beans. I will leave out the onion, but I am intrigued by adding dill.

I love pasta salad and I love tuna salad, so this is right up my alley. Like others have mentioned, this one really has a spring-y taste to it, thanks to the dill. I also really like the peas! Gives it just a little bitty amount of sweetness. :)

The dill gives this salad a lighter, fresher taste. A very good summertime dish.

2 c. of mayonnaise seems like a lot of dressing. Could you check if that's the correct amount?

I do not know if this is the right amount or not.. You could sub 1 cup Greek yogurt for the mayo. Also you could use fat free mayo

I'm new to this site. Where's the nutritional information?

YUM YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of our families summer favorites, very refreshing on a hot summer day! Thanks
