Tuna pasta salad without mayo is a classic potluck option for summer backyard barbecues. And I never lose my love for it!

When I was a kid, I was a sucker for my mum’s pasta salad, made with salmon, capers and a mayo dressing. Salmon or tuna still fit the bill, but these days I’m partial to an easy vinaigrette dressing, such as the lemon one in this recipe. If you’ve tried my Primavera Pasta Salad with Shrimp, you know that the dressing is simple to make and has just the right amount of tang.
