      Summer Tuna Salad – serves 6 with leftovers

      1/2 box of elbow macaroni
      1 small can of Veg-All (mixed vegetables), drained
      1 cans of tuna in water (drained)
      1/2 medium onion, diced
      3 stalks of celery, diced
      Salt, pepper, celery salt – to taste
      Mayonnaise (approximately 1 cup – more or less to taste)

      Cook macaroni according to box directions (cook lowest number of minutes).
      Cool down with cold water so it stops cooking. Drain completely.

      In large serving bowl, mix tuna, Veg-All, diced onion and celery. Add cooked
      (cooled) macaroni. Add mayo and spices to taste.

      Cover bowl and refrigerate
      several hours. (On a hot day, cook it first thing in the morning, and let it
      sit in fridge all day — keeps your kitchen cooler!) Serve on a bed of
      lettuce.

      That’s it! For some reason my family loves this served with Ritz crackers
      or saltines, instead of bread. Recipe doubles for larger groups.
