Tuna & White Bean Salad

My husband made this a few weeks ago and now it’s become a very frequent dish in our home. It’s such a well-rounded, nutrient-dense meal on its own (lots of protein, fiber & healthy fats) and perfect as a side dish with sandwiches and soups. I think this is one of the healthiest and most delicious, easy recipes ever. Let me know if you give it a try!

Tuna & White Bean Salad

Ingredients:
  • 2 cans tuna (I like tuna in olive oil, but in water works too)
  • 2 cans of cannellini beans
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (optional)
  • 2 stalks celery, leaves and all, chopped
  • half cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1-2 lemons to taste (we put 2)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
How to:
  1. Drain cans of tuna and beans, combine in large bowl
  2. Add chopped veggies, olive oil, lemon juice, zest, and olive oil
  3. Add salt & pepper
  4. Mix well
  5. Enjoy!

  1. This looks great… I used cannellini beans for chili I made on Sunday! Those are such yummy beans. This is so easy and healthy. Great for the little people before practice.

    I will be making this…thanks to Dylan!!!

  2. That looks so healthy and delicious, Annie. I made a similar salad a while back with garbanzo beans and it was so good. I’m going to try this one now. Thanks!
