what you'll need

  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise or more to taste
  • 4 green onions finely sliced
  • 1 large celery stalk finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp dill relish
  • 1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 hardboiled eggs cut into large dice
  • 12 oz can white albacore tuna

let's do it

  • Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. When the water reaches a full rolling boil, add a generous pinch of salt and cook the pasta according to the directions on the box—approximately 7 minutes.
  • When the pasta is al dente (tender but still firm) drain into a colander and run under cold water until completely cool. Allow the pasta to drain completely while you stir the dressing together.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the mayonnaise, green onions, celery, relish, mustard, seasoned salt and pepper then stir until well combined. Add diced egg and tuna, making sure not to break up the tuna too much.
  • Add the macaroni to the bowl and fold until completely coated in the dressing and the tuna is well distributed. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled. Serve and enjoy!

One Last Thing

The macaroni will absorb some of the moisture from the dressing so if it seems a bit dry, just add a bit more mayo or a couple of tablespoons of milk to achieve the correct consistency.
