1 cup Pasta
1 can tuna
1/2 cup light mayo
A squeeze of mustard
1/2 cup celery
1/4 cup cucumbers
1/2 cup carrots
1/4 cup red onion
Ensure that the pasta is cooked according to the package instructions.
Make sure to dice the carrots and onions into small pieces, so it cooks quickly! You want your pasta to be cooked before you add any of these ingredients to prevent burning or overcooking the veggies.
Mix the tuna, mayo and mustard in a large bowl. Add the pasta to the tuna mixture and mix well with tongs or chopsticks until all of it is incorporated into a uniform colour and texture.
Add cucumber and celery slices before serving as garnish (optional). Season it with salt and pepper before serving if you like and enjoy.
