Creamy Tuna Noodle Salad...

Who wants to cook when all you wish to do is be outdoors and soak up the rays? This simple tuna noodle salad fits the bill for lazy days and uses ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard and fridge. The best part is that it is a very versatile salad and any type of long pasta such as spaghettini or capellini you have on hand will work. It can accompany many meals or be a meal in itself. My kids just love tuna with mayo, and the addition of crunchy elements of celery and onions all smothered together with soft noodles makes it all the more irresistible! Leftovers are fantastic for something different in the lunch box too!

Creamy Tuna Noodle Salad
Makes 4 servings

1/2 lb. (225 g) somen or other Asian wheat noodles, cooked and drained well
1 can (170 g) flaked tuna, drained well
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced and soaked in water for 10 minutes to remove any sharpness
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced or use 1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 cup regular mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Japanese mayonnaise or omit ingredient and just use 1/3 cup regular mayonnaise
a little salt, ground black pepper and soy sauce to taste
TIP: Add wasabi for a spicy kick. Mix in 1/2 tsp. at a time until you find the right overall taste.

Add all the ingredients together and mix well with the seasoning at the end! Enjoy this nice and cool!

    1. Thank you for trying my recipe. I updated the recipe to include a tip to add wasabi. That will give it a nice kick and a twist on the conventional flavour. I did this for lunch today and husband and I loved it!
