Ready in 2 hours
This recipe is easy to throw together if you have a handful of fresh veggies you need to use and dont know what to do with them.
First you want to prepare your tuna. After it has been cubed put it in a non reactive bowl. Add all of the juice from your citrus and salt and pepper. Stir and cover. Place back in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. The acid from your citrus will cook the tuna.
Blanch your italian beans for approx 5 minutes in boiling water and then rinse in cold water. Drain and rinse your canned beans. Dice your celery, peppers, and onion. Mix everything together and toss in your slice tomatoes. When the tuna is done drain it and then add it to your vegtables. Toss with your favorite dressing and refrigerate till ready to serve.
This tastes even better the next day
Petrushka 7y agoSubstituted a diced roma and a yellow tomato for the grape tomatoes; added about 1/4 cup diced red onion in addition to the green onion; substituted drained & rinsed cannellini beans for the northern beans; and, at the last minute, decided to try a garlic ranch dressing rather than vinegrette. Daughter and son-in-law had seconds . . . and asked that I make it again, with more garlic next time. Excellent recipe to "play around with"!
Reinaquerida 7y agoI have made so many variations to this dish, you can use whatever fresh vegetable that you like, Also play around using your favorite beans, this is also very good with black beans. You can serve this on top of lettuce, with pita chips, in a wrap, or just by itself. If you have any variations you particularly enjoyed please feel free to let me know. [I posted this recipe.]
