I made this recipe exactly as written. It was delicious, inexpensive, and easy to put together. I used a high quality tuna, and I felt like that made a difference. I will definitely make this again, and I'd like to try it with tuna packed in oil as another reviewer mentioned.
Tuna & White Bean Salad
The time-honored Italian pairing of canned tuna and cannellini beans makes a super-simple, satisfying lunch. Serve over salad greens, on grilled whole-wheat country bread or tucked in a whole-wheat pita pocket.

Absolutely loved this recipe! Didn't have any tuna so I used canned wild salmon and it tasted great! It' s light and the lemon makes it refreshing! Will make again!
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this recipe, made some small changes based on what we had in the kitchen - replaced red onion with shallots, tuna in olive oil (drained but added some of that oil instead of the extra-virgin olive oil in the recipe), I don't like parsley so I skipped it.
I am sure I'll be making this dish again and again in the future, but for the next time around, will definitely double the garlic and shallots for a more intense flavor.
Made this for a light meal on a 100 degree summer's day. It couldn't be easier and just what I was looking for with not much energy to cook and not much of an appetite due to the heat. Added 1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes for color. I will definitely be filing this one in my recipe collection!
Buy quality tuna, full chunk in water or olive oil, and triple the garlic or you won't even taste it.
