  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and cool under running water.
  2. Mix both cans of tuna into the cooled pasta. Add the mayonnaise. Stir in onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you add too much mayonnaise, the salad will be runny. You want just enough to get the flavor into the salad, but not enough to make the macaroni white.
