This healthy white bean and tuna salad is one of the most unassuming and delicious concoctions that will have you coming back for more!
Talk about one of the most unassuming and absolutely delicious concoctions. So good that I literally am addicted. I can’t stop eating the stuff.
First tasted several months ago when my cousin, Julianne, made this for me during my visit home to Montana, I literally fought her for the leftovers during lunch. And then felt really guilty when I found out she was…well, newly pregnant.
I know. The shame of taking away food from a starving, pregnant woman. Oh, and fighting her for it, too.
The guilt didn’t keep me from making it since, though. I’ve made this several times and I love it for the following reasons:
a) It is cheap.
b) It is out-of-this world in light, fantastic flavor.
c) It can be enjoyed as an appetizer, snack, lunch, light dinner, midnight snack, however you please.
d) It can be used as a topper for crackers, bread, lettuce leaves/cups, celery, and I’m sure a million other ways.
e) It is healthy. So I don’t feel so guilty when I combine every option from c and d and eat this for two weeks straight.
It really is that delicious.
The sky is the limit with this salad: serve it with Flat Bread, crackers, toasted Whole Wheat Bread, celery sticks, lettuce, tortillas, chips, sliced cheese, cottage cheese, etc. Add a fresh fruit and a green salad to the other sides you have chosen and you have a meal.
