Tuna Pasta Salad

Tuna Pasta Salad

I am sharing with you a recipe that I have made for years and years and years. Ok, maybe not SO MANY years, I am only 43 geez! I love it just the way it is but you can do whatever you want with it and make it your own. This has been in my family since I can remember and I always loved when Mom made it. It is delicious, not pickled, I have never been quite the fan of pickled salad. Easy, good and the kids devour it. I am a stickler for the original and I love the Ruffles chips with it. Superbowl is coming up and this is a great dish to take or make. Enjoy!


5 cups of cooked pasta
1 can of white tuna in water
1 cup of shredded cheese (I prefer sharp cheddar)
3 chopped green onions
ruffles original chips
salt (1 teaspoon) and pepper to taste
Squirt of regular French'smustard (see picture) little less than a teaspoon?
1 cup of mayo
3/4 cup of sour cream


Cook the pasta and rinse with cold water. In a separate bowl add the tuna, cheese, onions, salt and pepper. In another bowl mix the mayo, sour cream and mustard. Then mix it all together and serve cold. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Ruffles Original Chips. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Good job of sharing the Tuna Salad recipe that has been a family favorite for so many years. It seems that some recipes just go on forever don't they? I still make it quite often, and we still love it. Good job, Dori. I know this will be enjoyed by many. Love you.

  5. Just whipped some up. It already tastes good and it hasn't chilled yet. Thanks for sharing, this will be on my list of keepers!

  6. What size can of tuna, 6 or 12 oz?
