Tuna Macaroni Salad

 I’ve recently come to the conclusion that my mother’s taste in food and mine are about half exactly the same, and half completely different, like, on a different planet different. Seriously, she eats some weird stuff. 😛

This tuna macaroni salad is one of the things we have in common though. It’s her recipe slightly modified, and it is delicious! It’s also multi purpose. Make up a batch to take for a cookout, and on the off chance you have any left to bring home, it makes a great lunch all by itself! 🙂

It’s easy and quick to make, and it all mixes up in one bowl. Sometimes I make it just to have for lunch for the week. 🙂
