Tuscan Tuna and White Bean Salad

Number of Servings: 6

Serving Size: 1/2 cup

There's no better reason to keep your pantry stocked with canned water-packed tuna and cannelloni or navy beans than this satisfying, fiber-rich Italian salad, which can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. Although commercially prepared dressing is perfectly acceptable, vinaigrette made with a fruity olive oil and a good red wine vinegar will taste even better. Sprinkle the top of the salad with chopped flat parsley for a fresh, bright green color contrast.

Name: Amount:
canned water-packed tuna, drained and flaked 6.50
can cannellini beans, of cooked white beans, rinsed and drained 19 oz
sliced red onion rings 0.33 cup
green bell pepper, chopped 2 Tbsp
fresh ground black pepper 0.25 tsp
prepared light Italian dressing 0.33 cup

Combine the tuna, beans, onion, green pepper, and ground pepper.


Mix in the dressing and toss to combine. Chill before serving.
