Tuna Spiral Salad

Warm summer days call for cool meals. Pasta Salad can be made in the morning when it is cooler out and enjoyed at anytime. However, there are only so many pasta salads one can make. This one from the Cooking Club magazine calls for tuna and ranch dressing which is a change from Mayo salads. Everyone enjoyed it and you can change the pasta to suit your family’s tastes. I added some chopped celery to the ingredients, you can change the veggies to suit what your family will eat. Quick to make and the broccoli cooks with the pasta to save an extra pan.  Try our homemade ranch dressing HERE.
