Tuna Pasta Salad recipe

Pasta salads are wonderful picnic food, and this tuna pasta salad is no exception. It's creamy, tangy and super filling, and you can hide all manner of vegetables in it - try sweetcorn, peas, carrots etc. Serve with salad and sarnies.


  • 300g dried macaroni or fusilli pasta
  • 2 small sticks of celery
  • 2 x 185g tins tuna in brine, drained and flaked
  • 3 large tomatoes, peeled
  • 300g mayo or salad cream
  • 100ml white wine vinegar, or to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put the pasta into a pan of boiling salted water according to packet instructions. Drain.

  2. Finely dice the celery sticks and dice the tomatoes. Combine cooked pasta, celery, drained tuna, tomatoes, mayo, vinegar and salt and pepper. Stir and taste.

  3. If you feel like the pasta needs more vinegar, add a bit more, if you feel it needs to be creamier, add more mayo.

Chill the salad before eating - for the best flavour, make this salad the day before you need it. Recipe serves 6.
