Tuna Pasta Salad

This pasta salad is very kid friendly and Sarah friendly. People always add the oddest stuff to their salads so 80% of the time I get weirded out and cant enjoy them. Here is a good base recipe that you can add stuff too.

Tuna Pasta Salad

1 (16 ounce) package small uncooked seashell pasta
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons pickle juice
2 teaspoons dried dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (6 ounce) cans tuna packed in water, drained
1/4 cup of options: onion, carrots, peas, broccoli, cheese, anything you want


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, milk, pickle juice, dill, salt, and pepper. Mix in tuna and optionals. Toss with cooked pasta. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours before serving.
