White Bean and Tuna Salad

Here is my lunch. From start to finish in about 10 minutes.

1can of white kidney beans, drained and rinsed well
1 can of Chunk Tuna.
2 green onions chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 red pepper
1 stalk celery chopped
1 Tblsp capers
tsp, minced lemon zest
Jarred olives(12, or so)
Parsley, fresh chopped
Herbs of choice
1/4 olive oil
2 tblsp red wine vinegar.
Salt'n'peppa

Mix it all up and you should get a couple of servings or enough for about 4 sides. I top with a bit of shaved parmesan cheese. Keeps a couple of days in the fridge....

I do the same thing using chickpeas and leftover grilled chicken breast. If I don't have lemon, I use lime.

I make something similar to this, and use the celery leaves also - try it some time - they're delicious! I also add tomatoes, and sometimes green peas or corn.

I usually add some tomatos, but I am tomatoless today. I will throw in some peas and corn next time if I have some. Thanks.

I do mine the same but add a splash or two of white balsamic to the mix. I use imported oil packed tuna or smoked trout in evoo. wonderful on a hot day with crackers or toasted baguette and a nice cold drink of some sort.
