Expert Tips

Use tuna in water if possible.

I recommend short pasta since it works best for salads. The small screws are best and if you use the colorful kind (vegetable), it'll look even nicer.

Consume on the same day to guarantee freshness.

Directions

  • 1 Use a medium pot with enough water, a drop of oil and a pinch of salt. Heat the pot on high until it boils, lower the heat and add the pasta. Cook according to the instructions on the package.
  • 2 While the pasta cooks, mix the rest of the ingredients in a medium, deep bowl and set aside.
  • 3 Once the pasta is ready, strain and immediately place in cold water to slow the cooking process. Add the pasta to the tuna mixture, salt and pepper to taste and add the tarragon. Serve cold.
