Blue Ribbon Recipe

Add this tuna pasta salad to your cookouts this summer. It’s a combination of tuna, egg, and pasta salad all in one. Sweet, savory, and creamy, it’s a delicious side dish. We love the fact it’s chilled. We thought it tasted better after it sat for a bit and cold out of the fridge.
