Tuna Macaroni Salad

Tuna macaroni salad is one of my favorite main dish salads. I used to look and look for the perfect recipe until not too long ago. I was at a local health food store and asked them what they used for their dressing. Their reply, "mayonnaise". How simple! Here's our now favorite and simple recipe.

Tuna Macaroni Salad
Ingredients:
cooked, drained and cooled noodles
frozen peas, cooked and cooled
mayoonaise
hard boiled egg, chopped
sweet onion, minced
canned tuna drained
shredded cheddar cheese, optional
canned and drained tuna
pepper

Directions:
1. Mix all ingredients together. Add enough mayo to make everything moist. Simple and divine! It's best the second day. You may need to add just a bit more mayo the next day.

If you need to garnish, this would look lovely in a cupped whole lettuce leaf (as the bowl) with the salad in the center and sprinkled lightly with paprika.
