Lemony White Bean and Tuna Salad

March 20, 2012


The unseasonably warm (yet glorious!) weather has caused me to lose my taste for heavy winter foods. I’ve been cracking into lighter fare, so it has been all salads, yogurt and cold noodles for me. And this amazing tuna salad. Simple, lemony and super filling. It’s prefect for lunch/dinner and home/office, it travels well and yum, yum, yum.

1  15 oz can cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
2 8 oz cans tuna packed in water (drained)
2 Tablespoons chopped chives
juice of 1 lemon
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions: Place the drained tuna in a mixing bowl and break it up with a fork until flakey.


Add the beans, olive oil, lemon juice and chives. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well.


You can serve this dish a number of ways: chilled or at room temperature; piled onto a bed of lettuce; stuff into a pita wedge; or plain right out of the mixing bowl.


For a pop of color, garnish with chopped chives and a thin slice of lemon.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

A lot of what you say happens to be astonishingly appropriate and that makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this subject goes. However at this time there is actually 1 point I am not really too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the position, allow me see just what the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.
