Tuna Salad with a Twist:
This dish does not look very pretty, but it is delicious! Tuna never tasted so "not like" tuna. It has an Italian flair with a little "wang".
1/2 red onion, peeled and sliced very thinly
1 can of cannellini or northern beans, rinsed well and drained
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 (6 ounce) cans of tuna (packed in water), drained
1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt
4 cups of fresh spinach (may use less)
* Place onion in a colander and rinse under cold water. Drain well, pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
* In a medium bowl, toss rinsed and drained beans with olive oil and lemon juice. Add salt, pepper and garlic salt (to taste). Fold in oregano, onion and drained tuna.
* Serve desired amount of tuna salad on a bed of fresh spinach
This is my new and favorite way to eat tuna!
