VARIATIONS

  • You can opt for green onion instead of red onion.
  • You can replace vinegar with lemon juice.
  • Substitute celery for celery seed if you want the celery flavor without the crunch.
  • Swap Mayo for light mayo for a similar flavor with less calories. You can also opt for Greek yogurt as a healthier option. This will have the same creaminess but will result in a slightly different taste.

HOW TO STORE IT

Store your tuna pasta salad in an airtight container and it will last in the fridge for up to 5 days.
