Tuna Bean Salad

This is a very nourishing and filling salad that can be considered a full meal unto itself. It is also very versatile where you can add any ingredients that you like or omit any that you don't like. And best of all it can be put together in minutes with ingredients that are usually available on hand in everyone's fridge and pantry.
