“This is for green olive lovers! I got this recipe from a co-worker years ago and I make it every summer. It's inexpensive, easy to throw together and makes a great summer meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse under cold water, drain, and place in large bowl.
  2. Add tuna, drained, to the cooked pasta. Use Albacore or Light tuna. If using canned, be sure it's packed in water - not oil.
  3. Add 1 jar of drained sliced green olives.
  4. Add 1 large diced tomato.
  5. Stir in 1 cup mayonnaise. **You may add more or less mayonnaise depending on your peronal preference.
  6. If the pasta salad seems too thick, add milk by the tablespoonful to thin.
  7. Gently stir the entire dish until everything is mixed well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour prior to serving to chill and let the flavors blend.
  8. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  9. Top each serving with a handful of crushed saltine crackers.
