Tuna Macaroni Salad

|
The other night I was faced with the dilemma of what to have for dinner. It was a rare occasion that Joe would't be there, and on those nights I like to be spontaneous about what I eat. I thought pasta sounded good, but I didn't want something with cream and I didn't feel like any sort of tomato sauce. Once I thought of my mom's macaroni salad recipe I knew I wanted a variation of that. I sized the recipe way down so I wouldn't have a week's worth of leftovers and I knew I wanted something crunchy so I added a green onion. Other new additions are just a little bit of mustard and crème fraîche to add a little extra something. I also used a large can of tuna and three eggs to up the protein.

Tuna Macaroni Salad



Ingredients
  • 8 oz elbow noodles
  • 3/4 to 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp crème fraîche
  • 7 oz can tuna, drained
  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 green onion
  •  celery salt
  •  dried dill
  •  pepper

Cook the noodles according to package directions, drain.
While noodles are cooking, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and crème fraîche together; slice the green onion, flake the tuna, slice the hard boiled eggs.
After the noodles have cooled a bit, add the mayo mixture and combine.
Add the tuna and onion then sprinkle some celery salt and dill on top (a light dusting to the surface area), and add a little pepper. Combine and add another dusting of the celery salt and dill. Combine again.
Add the sliced eggs and gently combine.
Chill in fridge for a few hours to let the flavors come together or eat immediately, both are great.



P.S. I just spent way too long trying to find out what that thing is you have on your post to properly present recipes but I don't even know what it's called and can't find it. Any help out there? :-)
