mediterranean white bean tuna salad


I recently received the first issue of an attractive coupon and recipe booklet from Kroger called My Magazine and was drawn to several of the recipes inside. One was this Mediterranean White Bean Salad submitted and artfully demonstrated online by Kroger shopper Cecilly. With radishes, tuna, and white beans dressed brightly with fresh lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, it was a welcome change to my menu. I changed the recipe a bit with what I had on hand.


Mediterranean White Bean Tuna Salad
adapted from a Kroger recipe

1 - 5 oz can solid white tuna in water, drained
1 - 15 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
3 radishes cleaned, trimmed and chopped
2 green onions, diced
6 green olives, diced
1/2 roasted red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 large lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix until incorporated. Serve with tortilla chips. Refrigerate leftovers.
