Tuna Tarragon Pasta Salad is my recipe of the day.

I had intended to get this published with the #FishFriday group you see me posting in  every month, but life got in the way and I was late.

The idea for this stems from when I heard people talking about a  restaurant called Sweet Tomatoes. Apparently they have lots of salads. We don’t have a restaurant like that near me, but it sounds  delicious.

And having to fend  for myself here, I just went with the  idea. And  while I can do side by sides or reverse engineer a lot of recipes I taste, I have never tasted the restaurant version of this.

It could (theoretically) be exactly like  it but  I would never know. However, since I do have some skills at making salads and dressings,  I can assure you that even if it doesn’t taste like theirs, this is a tasty tarragon tuna pasta  salad.

For all we know, it might even be better. If you have tasted the Sweet Tomatoes one, let me know how it compares.

In the  meantime,  we can enjoy this.  And  since restaurants aren’t open for  dining in anyway, you might  like to mix this one  up and  have it as part of a backyard picnic.

This summer is going to be chock full of old-fashioned, at-home activities like that, so we might as well plan ahead.

If you do prepare this for a picnic, be aware that it will need to be kept refrigerated or well chilled.
