Cannellini beans are a healthy food choice. High in protein, they are perfect in soups and salads.
Serves 4 people
800g (2 cans) cannellini beans
1 medium red onion (or 3 medium spring onion bulbs), chopped
6 × 80g or 3 × 160g tuna (try the Italian brands for a tastier flavour)
Half cucumber, chopped
2 medium size vine tomatoes, chopped
2 celery sticks, strings removed, chopped
15g basil, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
Balsamic red vinegar of Modena
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh or dried chive
Place the rinsed cannellini beans in a medium size salad bowl, remove the excess oil from the tuna tins and add the tuna to the beans with all the other ingredients, mix well and serve.
