A simple and savory cold pasta salad made with just a few ingredients like tuna, olives, tomatoes, gluten free pasta and an easy salad dressing. Can be served hot or cold to fit any season!
- 1 can tuna drained
- ½ oz pasta Gluten free, if preferred
- 12 cherry tomatoes half
- 1 red onion diced
- 12 black olives sliced, pitted
- 2 handful of fresh basil for salad and garnish chopped
- 5 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice (½ lemon)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black ground pepper
Cook pasta according to instructions on the package. Let cool.
In a serving bowl or separate bowl, separate tuna chunks into smaller pieces using a fork. For salad dressing, simply mix all the ingredients in a jar, close the lid and give it a good shake.
Stir in all the rest prepared salad ingredients and drizzle with Salad dressing, toss to coat. You can serve this salad warm or chilled.
Best served chilled.
If using Gluten free pasta for salad, it's best to eat it right away as the pasta has a tendency to harden after a while. So always best consumed fresh (if served as a cold dish).
