This incredibly easy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe was a hit at my house. So creamy and flavorful, so healthy, and just 5 Points per serving. By using less mayo and some nonfat Greek yogurt instead, the nutritional statistics changed dramatically. I’ve made this dish a few times as a main course and also as a side dish, and it works really well both ways.
I also love the fresh taste that the dill brings, and the red onions help to add some extra flavor and a nice crunch. And I think it’s great that this tuna pasta salad is such a versatile dish…you can really experiment and try it with different vegetables and herbs. I made it once with the addition of corn and it was fantastic!
Though, I’d highly recommend serving this dish chilled or at room temp. It’s not quite as good when it’s warm. But this healthy tuna pasta salad recipe will make a great low-calorie lunch idea or a super easy weeknight dinner. Definitely add this Weight Watchers pasta salad recipe to your repertoire!
