  • 14.5 oz protein plus pasta
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced, or white onion
  • 3/4 cup dill pickle diced
  • 14 oz canned tuna in water (two 7 oz cans) drained; I used costco size cans of albacore tuna
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Prepare ingredients by dicing red onion and dill pickles.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Salt the water and cook pasta until al dente. Stir in frozen peas and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Drain pasta and peas. If you want room-temperature pasta salad, don't rinse. If you want cold pasta salad, rinse with cold water.
  • In a large bowl, stir cooked pasta and peas together with remaining ingredients until everything is evenly coated in sauce {made from mayonnaise and lemon juice}. Serve or refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
