Tuna pasta salad is a classic potluck option for summer backyard barbecues. When I was a kid, I was a sucker for my mum’s pasta salad, made with salmon and a mayo dressing. Salmon or tuna still fit the bill, but these days I’m partial to an easy vinaigrette dressing, such as the lemon one in this recipe. If you’ve tried my Primavera Pasta Salad with Shrimp, you know that the dressing is simple to make and has just the right amount of tang.
Put this salad together up to a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. I recommend adding in the basil at the last minute to stop it from browning.
