Harvest Season Part I: Paleo Tuna Salad Wraps

Posted by

It’s harvest season and if you are like me, you are overwhelmed with both fresh garden produce and the heat. I mean what are you suppose to do with 4 tubs filled with cucumbers when it is 85 degrees out!

After dehydrating 4 gallons of Italian prunes, canning 8 quarts of applesauce and 12 quarts of fruit cocktail,  a simple dinner without the added heat of the oven or stove is a must! These tuna salad wraps are fresh, easy and pack the protein you’ll need to finish canning those beans and beets.
