Saladas de Atum – Tuna Fish Salads
I’ve been making salads to make it feel like Summer. Look at the beautiful colors in this salad! It says Summer doesn’t it?
Prepare the tuna salad and eat it over a bed of lettuce for a light lunch, or add the tuna salad to the cooked pasta for a main meal. Enjoy!
Ingredients for Tuna & Tomato Salad:
1 or 2 cans of tuna fish in water
1 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes

Salt to taste

8 ounces or 1/2 package of uncooked pasta (any you prefer)
1/2 cup of red, yellow or green pepper (chopped)

Cut the tomatoes in half. Drain the tuna. Place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir gently to incorporate the flavors.

Pasta Salad Instructions:
Prepare pasta per package directions but add the peas, peppers and onions 5 minutes before the pasta is done cooking.
Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse with cold water to remove the starch.
