Mediterranean Tuna White Bean Salad Recipe

Pinterest Logo

This recipe by Camellia Brand merges two ever-popular nonperishable staples that almost all of us have on hand: beans and canned tuna. Canned or pouched salmon can also be used, providing the additional benefit of more omega-3s. And if sodium is a concern, look for no-salt-added varieties of tuna or salmon. Don’t love fish? Just use chicken instead.
