simply delicious: cannellini bean and tuna salad

I’m running around tying up loose ends before we leave for our trip tommorrow morning. So many little things that I don’t want to forget about that I’ve got lists upon lists of things to remember. That’s why today I needed something quick to prepare for lunch and bonus points if it used up all the half-cut vegetables in the fridge. This canelli bean and tuna salad turned out to be amazingly simple to prepare and I had everything I needed in the apartment to make it happen. A perfect, quick summer lunch and delicious to boot.

    Yum! Your blog has provided two of my favorite summer salads thus far: this one and the five bean salad. Made it for a light dinner tonight and I will definitely make it again.

    LOVED THIS! I had never tried tuna and beans together, and sort of doubted the combination – *until* I tried this recipe! I’m glad I did – its a new favorite of mine!
    I have enjoyed this rolled up in fresh savoy cabbage leaves for the past week (cabbage ‘tacos’)! When I made a second batch, I used chickpeas and added 1 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tsp thyme and sage, to increase the savory goodness! Wonderful recipe, thank you so much!!!
