This healthy tuna pasta salad is soon to become a go-to for an easy lunch or picnic meal. We've made it gluten-free with quinoa-and-corn pasta, but you can easily swap in a whole-wheat pasta. It’s packed with fresh flavor, thanks to herbs and veggies. Jarred tuna (we like the brand Tonino) makes for a flaky protein that’s not overly fishy. The entire dish is wrapped in a light dressing for extra creaminess.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked dried quinoa-and-corn small shell pasta (such as Ancient Harvest), or other shell pasta
  • 1/2 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons country-style Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 medium-size garlic clove, grated
  • 1 cup chopped celery (about 2 large stalks)
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 (6.7-oz.) jar tuna in oil (such as Tonino), drained and flaked
