Hot Night Pasta Tuna Salad

Submitted by: GRATEFUL4TODAY

Introduction

This is my kid's favorite dinner for a hot night! I have adjusted it so that I can eat it as well by using whole grain pasta, greek yogurt, light cheese and other healthy choices. It sounds strange, but they beg for it! This is my kid's favorite dinner for a hot night!

    1 small jar black olives, sliced
    2 small cans white albacore tuna packed in water
    3/4 cups 2% sharp cheddar cheese

    1/2 cup 2% milk
    2 Tbs mayonnaise
    1 Tbs dijon mustard
    2 Tbs organic blue agave syrup
    1 tsp beaumonde seasoning
    salt and ground pepper to taste, if desired


Directions

Cook pasta and toss in olive oil. Cool in fridge or in ice bath. If cooled in ice bath, add olive oil after pasta is drained. Toss with tuna, olives, grapes and cheese. Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, milk, agave nectar and seasonings together for dressing and toss. If you are making this ahead keep dressing separage and toss just before serving or the pasta will absorb dressing and salad will be dry. Makes 11 1 cup servings.
