Three-Bean Tuna Salad

If you’re looking for healthy meals, but having a hard time finding ones with flavor this one is for you. With omega-3 fats in the tuna, and fiber in the beans this dish is definitely one for your “healthy” recipe box. Feel free to use what ever beans you like. I pick one type of bean when I half the recipe. Enjoy!


1 lemon
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 cans (15 to 19oz each) assorted beans
such as cannellini, garbanzo, and pink beans,
rinsed and drained
2 cans (6oz each) chunk tuna in water,
drained and coarsely flaked
salt and pepper
Your choice of lettuce

From lemon, grate 1 tsp. peel and squeeze 2 tbsp. juice. In a large bowl, stir together lemon peel, juice, oil, celery, and green onions. Stir in beans until coated, then gently stir in tuna. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Serve with your choice of lettuce.

Makes 4 main-dish servings
