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!
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.

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.
Love, Love, Love this recipe!!!!! Light and full of flavor, great on a bed of bib lettuce drizzled with olive oil and some freshly ground black pepper and salt.
