This salad is great, the flavors are so fresh. Simply using lemon juice over a heavy dressing really lets you taste the ingredients. It also helps cut down on the fat and calories, allowing you to create a simple, healthy, and lite meal.

"I made this with the ingredients I had on hand (reg. tomatoes, not cherry; lime, not lemon, wheat penne, not shells) and it came out great. Very light and the avocado and pasta make it filling. When I go to the store, I will try it as it was meant to be, but really delicious nonetheless!"

DELICIOUS!!! I have been looking for a healthy tuna salad for a while and this one is amazing. I absolutely loved it. I doubled the dill.

This salad is meant to be seasoned to your taste, so take the time to take a bite before refrigerating. This is a very crisp, fresh salad that can easily be improvised. You could sub out tuna for chicken instead or just add your favorite dressing. [I posted this recipe.]
