This salad is a favourite in my family. It makes great tupperware and picnic food. In the summer tho its not advisable for it to be out of the refrigerator for long as it contains mayonnaise. You can add many more ingredients to it like more crunchy raw veggies, or nuts …its actually upto what one likes. My family likes it this way so i dont experiment but feel free to do so and do let me know how your experiments turn out!!
2 cups of elbow (you can use any pasta which you like) pasta boiled
2 small cans of tuna, drained
1/4 cup of onion chopped fine
1/4 cup of grated cheese
1/2 cup of more of mayonnaise
2-3 tablespoons of mustard…i used 2 types a german and a dijon one
salt and pepper to taste
a dash of hot sauce(if you like)
lettuce leaves and finely chopped red capsicums for garnish
mix the pasta with the rest of the ingredients and add more or less mayonnaise as to your preference remembering that once its kept in the refrigerator the pasta tends to soak up the mayonnaise and it does get a bit dry (my family doesnt like too much i tend to add a bit less)
You will make this pasta again and again
NOTE: tuna can be replaced by boiled or grilled chicken or ham strips
