Tuna noodle mac salad. Perfect summer dish.
You know it is summer in our house when mom starts making what we call "tuna mac." Everyone including hubby loves this simple dish and when it is hot outside, I will make this early in the day to keep the kitchen cool in the evening. It is good alone for supper with some cut up fruit or as a side dish to BLT's or whatever floats your boat. My mother made this my entire life so I have been eating it for 40 some years.
1/2 pound noodles
2 cans of tuna drained
3 stalks of celery chopped
some chopped green onion or chives. I use chives as I always have them growing.
3 hard boiled eggs chopped
1 bell pepper diced
splash of dill pickle juice
2 tablespoons of dill relish or chopped pickles
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 sour cream (adjust the mayo and sour cream to your liking)
salt and pepper
Boil the noodles. Rinse and drain. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for at least several hours and enjoy.
