“A tasty change from the mayo-laden tuna salads of yore. I threw this together one day, just using what happened to be in my cupboards. Now it's a staple in my home - served at least ever couple of weeks.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups multi-coloured pasta
  • 1 can flaked tuna, in water
  • 12 cup kraft classic herb salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons armoat seasoning (or any other seasoning you like - Mrs. Dash, etc)
  • salt & pepper
  • 14 cup parmesan cheese, on top (optional)


  1. Drain tuna, adding the tuna water to a large pot.
  2. Add water to pot and boil pasta in this- it gives the pasta a nice tuna flavor.
  3. Rinse pasta under COLD water.
  4. Toss pasta with tuna and Kraft Classic Herb salad dressing.
  5. Sprinkle seasoning on.
  6. Add salt and pepper.
  7. Toss.
  8. Top with Parmasean if used.
  9. Chill at least 1 hour.
  10. You may need to add a bit more dressing just before serving, if the salad has gotten dry.
  11. Enjoy!
  12. Just a note - You must use the proper salad dressing for this - Kraft Classic Herb is the ONLY dressing we've found that tastes right on this. Italien is close, but not quite right.
