Tuna Apple Salad


  • 2 Cups Pasta ( Shell or Rigatoni)
  • 2 5oz can of Albacore solid white tuna in water ( or the pouch)
  •  1/2 of an diced apple ( I typical use gala or honey-crisp)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup of chopped red and/or green peppers
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup of corn ( optional)
  • 1tbsp of olive oil
  • Italian seasonings ( basil, parsley, oregano and rosemary)
  • 1/2 cup of vidalia onion vinegarette
  • a dash of garlic powder












  • Boil pasta for 8-10 minutes then drain
  • In a skillet on low heat; heat olive oil before adding onions, tuna, peppers, Italian seasonings and garlic powder. Saute for about 2 to 3 minutes before adding carrots, cook for another minute before removing from heat.
  • Add pasta to skillet and mix together; once thoroughly incorporated add apples, corn and vinegarette and mix together
This yields about four 4 oz servings.

The apples gives it a nice refreshing crunch and can be eaten cold or room temperature.  I make this quite often because my son ask for  it all the time.  


Hope you find it as delicious as he does.
