Sarasota's ... --This is Grandma's Tuna Macaroni Salad--
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
23 ingredients
4 servings
The other day on one of the posts, someone had mentioned making tuna macaroni salad for dinner and I just love that salad but haven't had it in quite a while. However, I have had so many versions over the years that have "tons" of mayo and "no" flavor it made me not want to make it anymore. But, I thought it was worth posting what I was used to having growing up. So, after looking online, I really didn't find one that was what our family made, so here it is. Now, we always served our "Tuna Mac Salad" with a bowl of creamy tomato soup (tomatoes from the garden), a loaf of bread (it didn't matter what kind, grandmas recipe fresh baked), and the Macaroni Salad was served over a bed of fresh chopped lettuce, (iceberg back then), whereas, today I use a mix of romaine and iceberg. This is still the only version I make.
