Delicious Tuna Salad

Coming to you from my friend at Mi Casa Cooking ~ a delicious and light twist for a tuna salad with tons of yummy flavors.  And since Summer is THE time for tomatoes, I sliced up a few mini heirlooms and added in for extra color and tons of flavor.
Open faced on some hearty bread is a great way to serve as well!

I really recommend using an herb salad mix & arugula - The peppery flavors in the greens are perfect compliments to the other ingredients.

Drain and rinse a can of canellini beans and plunk them in a bowl.  Add a can of tuna, one stalk of sliced celery, a few sliced kalamata olives, a handful of chopped fresh Italian parsley (or you can throw in some torn basil).  Toss gently together and season with salt and pepper.  Add the juice of half a lemon and a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil.  Give it another toss and enjoy!  You can also put it on a bed of arugula or other greens.  You can fiddle with your proportions but don't skip the canellini beans and use some other kind - there is something buttery about those beans that make this really work.
