Spring Salad StackUp Recipe @pinch

In spring and summer when cucumbers and tomatoes are at their freshest, this is a super easy salad to whip up. It's like a pasta salad meets a summer salad. But with the addition of tuna, it is a great light meal if you're serving a crowd or a potluck. The pasta is lightly coated with dressing and that's the base for the salad. Chunks of cucumber add a nice crunch and tomatoes add to the fresh feel. It's very basic, so you could add many more ingredients like shredded cheese, black olives, and red onion... the possibilities are endless. A quick, easy, and tasty salad. This salad is so good even the pre-schoolers ate it. It's wonderful for a quick, easy meal. Start stacking!
