Pasta and Tuna Salad (Ensalada de Pasta y Atún)

  • ½ cup diced celery
  • ½ cup finely chopped white onion
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley


  1. Boil the pasta in salted water until al dente and drain well.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    I love Tuna, its healthy and great for you. I have been looking for better ways to prepare this dish for a while. These days I make sure that the Tuna that I buy is from sustainable fishing sources.
