Mayo-less Tuna Macaroni Salad

Don’t like mayonnaise? Then you’ll love this salad made with canned tuna, arugula, capers and pasta topped with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano, olive oil and vinegar. Delicious, satisfying and perfect for lunch – it’s tuna salad all grown up!

This salad comes together in minutes and it’s a great way to make canned tuna a little fancier. This would also work with canned salmon or crab meat instead, any pasta shape would do.
