Tuna & White Bean Salad

This salad comes together in minutes, especially when you make a delivery order for all the ingredients from Gorillas in New York City or more than 54 cities in Europe.

I make this easy salad almost every week. It’s a perfect light lunch or mid-afternoon snack. I often make a double batch and keep it in the fridge all week. It’s easy to customize with whatever ingredients you have on hand. I sometimes use garbanzos instead of white beans. If I want to “fancy it up” I use dried beans instead of canned. I think slow-cooking dried beans makes the bean salad even more rich and delicious. You can also swap in lime juice, or even use bottled lemon or lime juice. Some fun add-ins are feta cheese, olives, tabasco sauce, sesame seeds, sweet onion, cucumbers, or whatever else your heart desires.

    I add crumbled Feta, chopped Roma tomato, some sliced green and black kalmata olives in addition to your ingredients, and chopped Calabrian chilies instead of the ground, because I have a VAT of them thanks to my Calabrian mother in law 🙄 Also a little fresh oregano and cracked black pepper… Summertime in a bowl, not to mention a full meal lol.
