Paleo Tuna Salad

The weather is warming up, and my desire to turn on my oven is going way, way, way down.  I love this time of year.  Summer in NYC is arguably my favourite seasons in the city.  During the summer months, so many organizations (like Lululemon or Athleta) begin hosting free events, to keep you busy, active and outside.  I love it! For example, yesterday was the start of the summer season of free yoga in Bryant Park (thanks yoga journal) which got me hot, sweaty and home late.  So when I stumbled through my door I wanted something quick, cool and nutritious to fuel my newly limber body.  This recipe for Paleo Tuna Salad takes under 10 minutes to prep (and consume if you are anything like Jameson or I) which was exactly what I was looking for.  This fast, inexpensive meal is not only a great post-work out pick me up but also an exemplary addition to your summer picnic basket. Enjoy!
