Summer is the time for cool salads. For some reason a few weeks ago, my mom and I started talking about this macaroni salad my brother-in-law Jim used to make for family reunions or afternoons at the lake. If you don’t like tuna, you could use pulled rotisserie chicken. But this is the original. 🙂 My brother-in-law was making this before “Pasta Salad” was all the rage! That’s why it’s called Macaroni salad.
4 cups Macaroni
1-1½ cups Hellman’s Mayonnaise
1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
1 bag frozen peas slightly steamed
½ tsp onion powder
1 12oz can of tuna
Cook and cool macaroni. Meanwhile, mix everything but the peas together. Stir macaroni into sauce. Once mixed. Gently fold in peas.
