Labor Day is only two weeks away. It's time for the last big picnic of the summer and if you are going to a gathering, take some salad.
This week we'll offer some new salad recipes perfect for your Labor Day, along with others that are tried and true favorites.
This recipe is pretty close to the tuna salad my mom made when I was growing up. The mix of avocado and mayonnaise is different, but the avocado adds a great creaminess with a better quality fat than the mayonnaise used exclusively in the original. The flavor is close to the one that I grew up eating, with canned tuna, crunchy peppers, celery, and peas.
If you want to use small shells (the size of your pinky fingernail), that's a fine choice, but I prefer this with the medium sized shells because that's how my mother made it.
