Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

This was a really quick brunch fix cos’ it was one of those make-ahead meals that I’d prepare the night before and all I would do the next day was just to toss the ingredients with the dressing. Nothing too fanciful as I just wanted to keep the flavours simple and I chose to use canned tuna in water as it’s low in fat and is a high lean protein. Every 100g of tuna has only about 110kcal which is even better! Enjoy this Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe 😉
