tuscan-style-tuna-salad-240

Ingredients

* 2 6-ounce cans chunk light tuna, drained
* 1 15-ounce can small white beans, such as cannellini or great northern, rinsed (see Ingredient note)
* 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
* 4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* Freshly ground pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions:

Combine tuna, beans, tomatoes, scallions, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir gently. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Ingredient Note:

When you use canned beans in a recipe, be sure to rinse them first in a colander under cold running water, as their canning liquid often contains a fair amount of sodium.
