Dill Veggie Tuna Salad Recipe

  • 1/2 cup small pasta shells, uncooked
  • 1 (5 ounce) can water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 cucumber – peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons ranch dressing
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  1. Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Once the water is boiling, stir in the shell pasta, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, about 13 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink, and chill by rinsing with cold water.
  2. Combine the cooled pasta, tuna, tomato, cucumber, red bell pepper, green onions, and celery in a salad bowl, and toss lightly to mix. Stir in the ranch dressing and dill, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
