Cannellini Tuna Salad

I found this recipe on a blog I follow called TidyMom... not that I am a mom, but there are some great crafting ideas and recipes! This one looks tasty and I might make it this week:

Cannellini Tuna Salad

  • 1 (16 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 1 (12 ounce) can tuna in water, drained
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and pat dry
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • kosher salt and cracked pepper, to taste
  • handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
In a medium bowl, mix cannellini beans, tuna and capers.  Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.  Gently fold in cherry tomatoes and half of the parsley.  Season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
Serve immediately on bed of spinach.  Garnish with remaining parsley.  (Can be served cold, just refrigerate tuna salad and place on spinach when ready to serve)
