Macaroni Salad with Aurora Sauce

Macaroni Salad with Aurora Sauce

This is our family's regular macaroni salad.
It has a slightly sweet flavour with aurora sauce (a mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup) and raisins.
My children love this salad.

Ingredients: 3~4 servings

Macaroni
100 g
Frozen mixed vegetables
100 g
Cucumber
1
Canned tuna
1 can
Raisins (optional)
to your liking
Mayonnaise
3 tablespoons
Ketchup
3 tablespoons
Dried parsley
a small amount
Salt
a little
Pepper (optional)
a little

Steps

1. Boil water and add some salt. Cook the macaroni ( follow the package instructions for cooking times).
2. 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.
3. Add the frozen mixed vegetables to the cooking water 2~3 minutes before the macaroni is done. Cook together in the same pan!
4. Drain the macaroni and mixed vegetables in a colander and run some cold water over them quickly.
5. Put the mayonnaise, ketchup, dried parsley and drained tune in a bowl. Mix well.
6. Add【2】,【4】and the raisins into【5】. Done! If it tastes too bland add some pepper.
7. 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.
