Boil water and add some salt. Cook the macaroni ( follow the package instructions for cooking times).
Slice the cucumber thinly, massage with salt and leave to rest for a while. When the cucumber is wilted rinse under tap water and squeeze out very well.
Add the frozen mixed vegetables to the cooking water 2~3 minutes before the macaroni is done. Cook together in the same pan!
Drain the macaroni and mixed vegetables in a colander and run some cold water over them quickly.
Put the mayonnaise, ketchup, dried parsley and drained tune in a bowl. Mix well.
Add【２】,【４】and the raisins into【５】. Done! If it tastes too bland add some pepper.
I put some in my child's bento box for lunch.
Story Behind this Recipe
This has been one of our favorite salads. I thought the salad with aurora sauce was quite usual but Cookpad members asked me to upload the recipe with this sauce. So I did.
The amount of mayonnaise and ketchup is adjustable. Make the sauce to your liking. Add as many raisins as you like. For small children it might be a good idea to add tinned mandarins to add a sweeter taste to this salad but adult men don't like that. Instead of tuna use ham or instead of the frozen mixed vegetable use your favorite vegetables. Enjoy making your own salad!
