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!
