Tuna Noodle Salad

Y’all, this is such an easy recipe. Perfect for a luncheon, potluck, or an easy dinner. I remember as a child my mother making Tuna Noodle Casserole and I wanted nothing to do with it, even though I liked all the ingredients. It’s funny how we change and our taste for foods change.


  • 8 oz Chunk Light Tuna (in water), drained well
  • 16 oz Cooked Elbow Macaroni 
  • 1 to 1 1/4 c Mayonnaise
  • 6 tsp Dill Pickle Cubes
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • pinch of Dried Thyme, crushed between your fingers
  • 1 tbs Dried Parsley, fresh is good too
Empty tuna into a mesh strainer and drain well.
Cook Pasta. Bring water to a boil, add some salt to water then add pasta and boil for 10 minutes.
While pasta cooks, in a medium mixing bowl add mayonnaise, pickles, lemon juice, and seasonings and combine.
Add drained tuna to wet mixture and combine.
When the cook time is done for the pasta, drain well. Add pasta to tuna wet mixture and combine.
I like the tuna noodle salad once it’s chilled in the refrigerator but it’s good warm too.
Easy and Simple!
Optional: add diced onions or diced red pepper to suit your taste.
