Very Veggie Mix Tuna Salad

(contains amazon afilliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Morning dear readers,  I'm redoing this recipe because I feel it needs a post all its own.  I had included it in the housing experiment because it was an easy recipe for teens to make when on their own. It adds a lot of color to your diet which is a good thing because it means your eating your veggies.  I also have pictures this time.  Here's what you'll need.

                                                  Very Veggie Mix Tuna Salad

2 cans tuna packed in water
6-8 oz of elbow macaroni  you can use the veggie blend or whole wheat to make it even more healthy
1 bag very veggie mix torn up into small pieces you use about 2 cups
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup onion you can add more
1 cup pickle relish

First off cook your noodles until aldente.  When they are done run cold water on them until chilled.
Adding onions and very veggie mix then add mayonnaise mixing with spoon.  Then add pickle relish and lemon juice and mix again.  Then add tuna and mix and flake with a fork.  Taste test it adding more of whatever you like i.e.  mayonnaise, lemon or pickle relish.  Put in refrigerator and chill for a couple of hours. A trick I do to speed up chilling I stick in freezer for 30 minutes.  This makes a great main dish or side.  You can even serve it for the Superbowl.

                                                      Here's what you need.

                                            Lovely find at the dollar store--the grater

                                                             Adding the onions

                                                              Look at that color.
                                                                Almost finished

                                                                     Viola done.
