Ingredients For white bean & tuna salad

  • 1

How To Make white bean & tuna salad

  • 1
    For the tuna, if using canned in olive oil, 185 grams each can (5-6 oz each can) or 250 grams fresh cooked.
  • 2
    Dice the onion and splash just a bit of the lime juice on them and toss together, this will cut back on some of the strong flavor of the onion. Set aside.
  • 3
    Drain the cans of tuna, or drain fresh cooked if needed. Add the tuna to a large mixing bowl, add drained beans, and add remaining ingredients. (I used chickpeas this time that I cooked in a pressure cooker.)
