On the Side #6: Macaroni Salad

An old family favorite that's easy to put together!


1/2 pound salad macaroni

1/2 small onion, finely chopped

1 jar dill pickle relish

1 can sliced black olives, drained

1 can tuna, drained

1 small jar diced pimentos

1/2-3/4 cup light mayo

salt & pepper

extra pickle juice, if needed


1. Cook macaroni in salted boiling water for time directed on package.


2. Drain the macaroni in a colander and run cold water to cool off the pasta. Once cooled, shake all the water off the macaroni.


3. Place drained macaroni in large mixing bowl. Add onion, dill pickle relish and olives. Flake the tuna with a fork into the bowl. Then add the pimento. Using a large spoon, mix all the ingredients together.


4. Add the mayo, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix well.


This salad can be refrigerated for 2-3 days. Should it become dry in texture, you can

add a bit of pickle juice and a bit more mayo to moisten.
