Tuna Macaroni Salad

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Growing up my sister and I loved eating this salad my mom makes every year usually around spring or summer time.

We have SO many childhood memories linked to this Tuna macaroni salad. The one main memory is going to the beach or lake.

Not only is it delicious, but it’s also refreshing with the pops of cold peas, creaminess from the mayo with a slight tang from the yogurt and filling from the pasta. It’s an all-around perfect dish.

I took my mom’s recipe and lightened it to perfection with a few additions! 👌
