Entrees Sides

Tuna Pasta Salad


Tuna Pasta Salad | A Splash of Love

I am a fan of any sort of pasta, but I like this one because it’s not your typical Italian pasta. This pasta salad is a great side dish or even an entree if ya feel like it. I had every bit of ingredients in the pantry & fridge, but unfortunately no peas – good thing for Taylor because he [sadly] doesn’t like peas. Anyway, this dish has a light kind of feel to it. It is great for the summers or a picnic or even just a snack. Either way, you should make it. 

A plus to this recipe is that I used my moms zucchini relish!
