Tuna Medley

Tuna Medley is one of my favorite lunches to make. It's fast, easy, filling, frugal, and it beats tuna-fish sandwiches any day! I'm not a huge fan of tuna, especially tuna sandwiches, but this is really good.
Normally it's best as a summer lunch because it's a cold dish, but I like it anytime.

Basically I boil whole grain spiral or mararoni style pasta till cooked and then drain. Then I mix in the following ingredients to taste. The whole mixture is chilled till cool and eaten as a main dish or as a side salad.

Miracle Whip

Canned tuna (yesterday I used 2 cans, but often I just use one)

Lemon juice
Chedder cheese, grated
Fresh vegetables--these can be anything. In yesterday's version I went simple and just used frozen peas and chopped up carrots. Other ideas that work well are frozen mixed vegetables, celery, red cabbage sliced thinly, diced onions, cucumbers, diced tomatoes, bell peppers etc.
