I did this my way, but you did gave me the base for the recipe: I stared with your base recipe but I use small shells pasta, dill relish, black and green olives and sweet onion chopped, grated carrots chopped fresh parsley and Dill a little fresh lemon juice, zest whatever seasoning you like OR about a pound of small salad shrimp. Mr. Foods mayo gelatin etc. etc. 2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder 1 tablespoon 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon white pepper 1 (10-ounce) package frozen cooked shrimp, thawed and drain

I will miss the tuna fish. Will give that a try...

If you like tuna in mac salad add it I added shrimp

I haven't try this yet, but I think that would a few ingredients. Sound kind of bland. Has anyone out there try this recipe? I think I could add black and green olives, some chopped hard boil eggs maybe a can of green chilies. I'll let know when I do this. Maybe our next neighborhood BBQ =..= and little dijon mustard to mayo

I agree you can ad anything you want to this one! the eggs and Olives I would ad to this one!
