Tuscan-Style Tuna Salad by


This streamlined version of a northern Italian idea is perfect for a summer evening: no-fuss, no-cook and big taste. You can even make it ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. If you do, use it as a wrap filling for the next day's lunch.

2 6-ounce cans chunk light tuna, drained
1 15-ounce can small white beans, such as cannellini or great northern, rinse
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste


1. Combine tuna, beans, tomatoes, scallions, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
2. Stir gently.
3. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Ingredient Note: When you use canned beans in a recipe, be sure to rinse them first in a colander under cold running water, as their canning liquid often contains a fair amount of sodium.
