Tuna Pasta Salad


2 cups uncooked fusilli pasta (or your favorite variety)
1 can white tuna, packed in water, flaked
1/4 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup carrots, in thin strips (I use a carrot peeler)
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup sliced radishes
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 generous tablespoon sweet pickle relish
Salt and pepper to taste

Dressing:

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup mayo
1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning

Cook pasta, drain and cool.

In a large bowl, toss together pasta, tuna, celery, carots, cucumber, radishes, green onions and sweet pickle relish.

In another bowl, prepare dressing by mixing yogurt, mayo and lemon pepper together.

Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.

Salt and pepper if desired.

Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
