Best Tuna-Macaroni Salad Recipe

Tuna Macaroni Salad is a dish that doesn’t get a lot of credit. It’s one of those meals that most of us remember our Mommas making. It is economical and it makes a lot. I absolutely love to dig into a bowl of this stuff.

It is one of my favorite comfort foods (besides potato salad!) This really is an entire meal in one for me. This salad is a perfect lunch (or even dinner.) You can even add some shredded cheese or diced ham to change it up a bit. Also, I like to use a shallot instead of an onion in this. Shallot has a very light onion flavor and doesn’t overpower the other flavors. If you can’t find a shallot, just use a small, yellow onion. Also, if you don’t have lemon juice, you can substitute with mustard. It gives it just the slightest little tang but it’s not overpowering. Perfect for a simple summer supper or as a main-dish potluck contribution, this tuna noodle salad is a comfort food classic that comes together in just 20 minutes. Serve it on a bed of lettuce or other cool, crisp greens, and pair it with some crusty bread for a satisfying and refreshing entrée.
