Today I am presenting a new take on an Italian summer classic: tuna and bean salad. This dish is a delicious and simple summer lunch that is typically put together by mixing canned tuna, canned beans and onions for flavor. Dress it simply with olive oil and maybe a tad of balsamic vinegar and you have a winner!
For this version, I used butter beans and added fennel to the basic ingredients. Of course given how simple this dish is, you have to really pay attention to the ingredients. In particular, the tuna that has to be of good quality or it might be too dry. Since most of the flavor in this salad comes from the onion, choose an onion you like. A white onion will be milder, a purple one will be stronger.
Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed!
