Tuna Pasta Salad with Dill

Well, hello! You’re probably thinking, finally, something healthy for once! Haha! Well, almost.  I do eat the odd healthy lunches at the office sometimes and there was a tuna pasta salad I had from a takeway place around the corner.  It was fresh tasting (hope it was fresh) and I wanted to re-create it at home.

Here’s the recipe if you want to give it a go:

Tuna Pasta Salad with Dill- serves 4

250g bow tie pasta (or whatever short pasta you like)
425g canned tuna
4 Tbsp of whole egg mayonnaise
1 medium size red capsicum (diced into tiny little pieces)
4 hard boiled eggs
1 Tbsp of dried parsley flakes (chopped fresh parsley would be the healthier option)
pinch of salt and pepper
dill
lemon

Cook pasta until al-dente, drain and set aside.  Drain the tuna from the can and in a large bowl, mix the tuna with mayonnaise, capsicum, parsley and salt and pepper.  Mix until all is well combined. In a large salad bowl, throw in the tuna mix and pasta and mix thoroughly being careful not to bash the pasta (use your clean hands if need be).

In a bowl, serve the pasta with dill and a couple of wedges of eggs and a tiny squeeze of lemon.  Voila, healthy salad. It’s surprising filling so if you feel like you ate too much, don’t feel bad, it’s a salad. :)

This salad finally gave me the excuse to use the pasta bowls that have been sitting in our cupboard for yonks! :)

Enjoy folks!
