Classic Tuna Noodle Salad

I have been making this salad for as long as I can remember.
My mom made this salad, usually during lent and
I have always made this salad for summer barbecues.
When I was a newlywed, so many years ago, it was an easy and
very affordable salad to make and still is!

We prefer this salad on the dry side...
made with a light hand on the mayo but
feel free to add as much as your family likes.
