Pasta: I used Fusilli pasta for this recipe but feel free to use whatever shape of pasta you like!
Tuna: we’re using tuna packed in water, and with no salt added, in this recipe that has been drained thoroughly before adding it to the pasta salad. Be sure to grab tuna that has been packed in water and not oil for the best results.
Veggies: for all of that delicious crunch and flavor this recipe uses a combination of celery, red bell pepper, red onion, and green peas.
Capers: these add such great brightness to the pasta salad that works perfectly with the tuna.
Fresh Herbs: a combination of fresh dill and fresh parsley add just the right touch of fresh flavor.
Greek Yogurt: the base of the pasta salad dressing is creamy whole milk plain Greek yogurt.
Mayonnaise: to add a little richness to the dressing we’re using just a bit of mayo.
Garlic: a little fresh garlic goes a long way to add some delicious flavor.
I hope you give this Tuna Pasta Salad a try! It’s packed with protein and the perfect healthy lunch!
