Dilly Tuna Macaroni Salad with Cheese

Dilly Tuna Macaroni Salad with Cheese

Folks, lately the weather here in Montana is hot, hot, hot. A chilled macaroni salad is a great option for a light lunch, or as a side for a barbeque potluck. This macaroni salad is not sweet at all, but rather it has the flavor of dill. If you are a pickle lover, this may just be the pasta salad for you.

I tried this macaroni salad with and without sliced dill pickles. I wrote them in as optional for the recipe as I think the recipe works well either way. If you LOVE pickles I'd say go for the pickles and if you want a tamer pickle flavor you could skip them. The dill gives that essense of pickle flavor so even if you skip the dill pickles you will still have that pickle flavor, just a bit less strong.

Note: This is best when prepared and eaten on the same day. Leftovers are good but it if you are making this for a get together I'd recommend making it the same day as your party. Enjoy!
