I was craving a light and healthy macaroni salad when I created this recipe for Tuna Macaroni Salad. The red onion and cornichons give it a wonderful crunch and the tuna provides enough protein that you can serve it as a main dish. I recently made it at our annual campout with friends and it was a total hit!
1 lb. large elbow macaroni, cooked, rinsed, and drained
2 to 3 cans albacore or skipjack tuna in olive oil
3.8 oz can sliced black olives, drained
2/3 cup cornichons (small dill pickles), drained and chopped
Red onion, chopped
1 bottle of red wine vinaigrette
Place the macaroni in a large salad bowl. Add the cans of tuna including their oil. Add the olives, cornichons, red onion, and vinaigrette, to taste. Mix well and chill until potluck time!
