Share it:

Yet another recipe with infinite options, add whatever you like, remove items you don't. It's pretty hard to mess up and pretty easy to make vegetarian (and still healthy, hearty and full of protein).

"Super versatile and makes great leftovers for lunch. I will definitely be making this again and again and in different versions."

Are you making this? 
1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans; drained and rinsed
1 jar (or can) olive oil packed tuna (drained); flaked with a fork (I highly recommend Tonnino with oregano from Whole foods)
1/2 can (15 oz) artichoke hearts; roughly chopped
2 roma tomatoes; roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic; minced
2 ounces parmesan cheese; grated
1/3 cup red onion; chopped
1/4 cups scallions; sliced
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoons red wine or balsamic vinegar
1 small can black olives; sliced
3 tablespoons fresh parsley; chopped (or 1 tablespoon dried)
1 dash salt and pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Chop, prepare and open accordingly and mix everything together seasoning with salt and pepper.

This is what I had on hand when I made the salad, leave out the artichokes and possibly the tomatoes if you want a more traditional version. I like volume and variety.

Things I would love to try in different combinations with those listed in the recipe:


basically any fresh herbs

herbed goat cheese

kalamata olives


sun dried tomatoes

pine nuts

olive oil (if using tuna packed in water)

italian dressing (instead of oil and vinegar)

ranch dressing (if feeding children who only eat food with ranch (I actually don't want to try this at all))


Get creative.
