Caribbean Tuna Pasta Salad

Caribbean Tuna Pasta Salad

This Caribbean tuna pasta salad has a tasty island┬áslant to it. Tomiko had a high school friend from Jamaica, and this was something she made. It’s quick to whip up, and really easy to customize based on what you have on hand. Why not add some chopped avocado (right before you serve it, so it doesn’t oxidize and turn brown), more jalapeno, a tomato, or as much hot sauce as you can handle!
