I really dislike the regular IP rotini, but I gave in and tried the new tomato/basil flavored. I like it!IP Rotini tuna salad

First, I boiled it in chicken broth rather than water so that it had even more flavor. I added the broth to a pot of soup I already had in the fridge when I was done cooking the noodles.

The salad is pretty simple.

The other day I made a “honey” dijon mustard for dipping chicken and spreading on fish.
This is what I used as the goop to hold the salad together. About 1/4 cup or so.
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup splenda (or more to taste)
1/8 cup cider vinegar
1/8 cup Kraft fat free mayo (optional, just to add some creamy-ness)

In the salad is just

a can of chunk light tuna in water (drained)
IP rotini noodles
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 chopped sweet red pepper
two green onions chopped
Dijon honey mustard. Just enough to moisten and hold it all together.

It made enough salad for two small servings or one good sized lunch. I think it’s YUMMY! Next I think I will try turkey or chicken breast salad with them.
