Macaroni Tuna Salad Diversity!

image

I know! That is NOT a picture of the macaroni tuna salad we’re use to! CORN?!?!
Well…hey…I liked it! So I’m sharing.

1 package elbow macaroni
1 lg can tuna, drained
(YES, that’s Bumble Bee Tuna John Luke) 🐝
image
1 sweet onion, chopped small dice
1 cup fire roasted corn (grilled)
1/4-1/2 cup baby kale, finely chopped
1 1/2 cup salad dressing (like Miracle Whip or if your pref is mayo use that)
1 tbs dijon mustard
1 tsp raw organic sugar
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

*optional would be typical sweet peas instead of corn.& Sweet relish, celery &/or 3 hard boiled egg slices on top with paprika.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes.
Grill corn, let cool, cut off cob.
Drain pasta and rinse under cold running water.
In a large bowl, stir together the macaroni, tuna, onion, kale and corn (any optiinal ingredients) .
Mix in the salad dressing (or mayo), mustard, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper.
I mix dressing separately before adding to macaroni; blends better/more evenly.
(Option: garnish with egg wedges and a sprinkle of paprika; like I do potato salad)
Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

Make sure your pan is big enough for all these ingredients for large party 🌼 be careful w/ the tuna can as well – you might end up w/ band aids & gloves to mix 😉
