I just love a cold tuna pasta salad on a hot summer day. More tuna salad recipes you may like are Chickpea Tuna Salad, Italian Tuna and Brown Rice Salad (Riso e Tonno), and Canned Tuna Ceviche.

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.
