Packed with protein and fiber, this tuna and bean salad is ready in a flash. For an extra kick, add a pinch of crushed red pepper or cayenne.

liked this! we used kidney beans in it and added avocado slices and a nice hearty bread as sides and really enjoyed it. The lemon dressing is just right!


We make this a lot on really hot days. Instead of water packed tuna, I use chunk light tuna in olive oil (Genoa is the brand I typically use). I don't drain the oil, but instead use it in place of the olive oil called for in the recipe (it's actually a little less than the 4 Tbs called for). I also sometimes use about a pint of grape or gold cherry tomatoes in place of the pepper, sliced in half.

This was a wonderful salad

My husband and I just loved this salad. I added some chopped frozen artchoke hearts, some chopped marinated shiitake mushrooms and a little diced reduced fat smoked gouda to make it a bit more substantial. I left off the rosemary because I don't care for it and added Dijon and Worcestershire sauce to the dressing. My husband is going to start a list of the top ten salads I've made (he already has one for soups) and this will be number one.

Great combination of flavors
light and fresh

I really enjoyed this light and fresh tuna salad. I too added a little dijon mustard which created a nice flavor. It's the perfect picnic food!


I added a good bunch of dill to the salad and it was perrrrfect
