You’ll love my Tuna & White Bean Salad with Red Wine vinegar dressing! It’s packed full of protein and contains tuna, white beans and fresh parsley. It’s A really healthy, low calorie lunch or dinner option, this salad is ready to eat in less than 5 Minutes!
The truth is that I’m not 100% sure of the origin of this particular dish, but I do know that the combination of tuna and Cannellini Beans is a pretty classic Italian flavor combination so I’m going to give my Italian friends a nod !
14 oz tuna, canned in oil
30 oz cans cannelini white beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
ground black pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp parsley, chopped you can also use Basil, Oregano or other fresh herbs.
Drain the canned tuna and add to a large bowl. If the tuna is packed in olive oil, reserve it for use in the dressing. Add the white beans to the tuna and stir to combine.
Mix the oil, vinegar and seasonings together, then pour over the fish/bean mixture, you may not need to add all of it.
