Tuna Macaroni Salad with Cranberries

Happy Thursday!

This treat is a mix of basic with a little kick.
The other night I came home and put this together in under 25 minutes.

-1/2 box of elbow pasta
-2 cans of tuna 
-pinch of salt
-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
-shredded carrots
-shredded lettuce

Boil the water add pinch of salt and add the pasta till tenderness is to your liking.
Drain and place in large bowl.

Shred enough carrots to make a handful and same with the lettuce.
Add the tuna and mayo to bowl of pasta, mix in the veggies.
Let it cool in the fridge for about half an hour. 

At this point it's ready to eat as is but I wanted an extra kick so I picked cranberries.
My daughter wanted the dried cranberries but I chose the canned.

The sweet/tart flavor was an added treat indeed.
We loved it, quick and easy and healthy.

Always stress free xo.
