  • 1 pot for cooking pasta


  • 12 oz Jovial Gluten Free Bowties or pasta of choice
  • 3 5 oz cans of tuna drained - I like Wild Planet brand
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cucumber sliced and halved
  • 1 bell pepper any color, diced
  • cup mayo
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dill weed
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • Cook the pasta according to package directions. Rinse under cold water.
  • While the pasta is cooking, add the mayo, salt, dill, coconut aminos, dijon mustard, and lemon juice to a small bowl. Whisk together until smooth.
  • Add the cooked cooled pasta to a large bowl along with the drained tuna and chopped veggies. Pour the mayo sauce mixture over top. Toss everything together until the sauce is incorporated. Serve right away, or refrigerate until ready to serve.


1 serving = 1/8 of the total pasta salad. About 1 cup!
This pasta salad will last the fridge for up to 5 days.
