Tuna Pasta Salad

15 mins (prep 15)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
My own recipe for a delicious, cold salad made with multicolored rotini, canned tuna, onions, celery and carrots. It's wonderful in the summer as a light dinner served with blueberry or pineapple muffins. The secret is to used canned tuna in vegetable oil rather than water--it makes a more moist, delicate salad overall.
