Cannellini Beans & Tuna Mix

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

Black pepper



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.
