Tuna Mac Salad

Comfort food

Comfort food

When I think comfort food I usually think of winter braises and heavy potatoes. But when it comes to summer it is tuna macaroni salad. This is one food my mom made well. Most of the foods from my childhood I have adapted to newer forms to accommodate the way I eat now.  Mom was not a great cook. However tuna mac still makes me happy made the old fashioned way. I don’t measure anything and the only pasta acceptable is shells or orrecchette ( little ears). Cook about two cups pasta in salted boiling water till al dente, drain and cool. Add 2 cans of tuna, chopped celery and onion. I add thawed pea(I don’t think mom did that). Plus a generous amount of dill. Mix it all up with mayo salt and pepper. If you like a few dashes of Tabasco. Chill. this may not make it on the trendy, hot or cool list but it takes me back to childhood a couple times each summer. Comfort food.
