White Bean and Tuna Salad

Transform your pantry staples and a handful of fresh ingredients into a quick and delicious meal.  You can easily dress up this bean salad with fresh herbs and serve it on a bed of greens, but why complicate things?   The simplicity of this salad lets the flavor of 5 ingredients shine through.  Simply open a few jars, drizzle olive oil, add green onions and squeeze a few lemons.  It's that simple.  It's that delicious.  

I enjoy Judion de la Granja beans because they are ready to use.  The beans are tender and creamy right out of the jar.  They're a perfect compliment to 'Bonito del Norte' tuna.  This isn't your supermarket water-packet tuna.  This is silky smooth white Bonito tuna.  

Drain the jar of beans and arrange on your serving platter or shallow bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil.  

Remove the tuna from the jar and reserve the oil.  Break the tuna into bite size pieces and arrange over the beans. 

 Drizzle about one third of the reserved oil over the salad.  

Squeeze the juice from two lemons over the salad.  Garnish with chopped green onions and lemon slices.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
