The tuna salad gets stuffed into jumbo pasta shells. Before serving, the shells get drizzled with a sweet and tangy, creamy dressing made from sour cream, apple cider vinegar, sugar, mayonnaise, celery seed, and onion powder.

You could skip the pasta shells and just serve this tuna salad over a big bed of lettuce with tomatoes for an even lighter lunch.
