White Bean Tuna Salad

White Bean Tuna Salad Recipe

I’ve been using this recipe for the last few years and love it for its simplicity. We probably eat this more often in the summer months, but you can also enjoy year round.

Since this dish can hold up for about 1 week in the fridge, I find that it’s a great dish to prep ahead for a busy week or to bring along on a camping trip. I like to serve it with some toasted pita bread, but you can easily put this on top of any salad or bread alternative.
