This Avocado, Tuna & Celery salad was a huge hit with my family. In the dog days of summer, I needed a recipe that wouldn’t heat up the house. On the Plant Paradox program, I also wanted a recipe that didn’t contain any lectins. I adapted this recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen, Avocado Tuna Salad Recipe at natashaskitchen.com.

Since we do not eat cucumbers, I made my salad with celery which gave it the crunchiness of the cucumbers. Also, I didn’t have any cilantro, so I just left out the herb.
