2 can(s)
solid light tuna, packed in oil
3 Tbsp
red wine vinegar
1 tsp
dijon mustard
1/4 tsp
salt and pepper
1 can(s)
cannellini beans, rinsed & drained

tomato, cut into wedges

1Microwave frozen green beans 5-6 minutes. Remove from microwave and let cool slightly. (If using fresh green beans, parboil them until tender.)
2Make dressing: Drain olive oil from tuna into a liquid measuring cup. You should have 1/4 cup. Add vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper, and stir with a fork to blend.
