“Uber” Easy Bean, Tuna & Tomato Salad

I’m still on a bit of a “bean theme”  in the kitchen, wanting to take advantage of the garden beans whilst fresh and tender….  I have 5 different types growing this year, they are all drying at the moment to be stored for nexts years planting and for EATING over the winter.  I could spend hours dipping my fingers into the dried beans (à la Amélie Poulin).  This is another classic summer salad “chez nous”…  Thanks to our friend John (co-author of another food blog) for the original idea that I have since made my own 🙂


Bean, Tuna & Tomato salad

  • A couple of good handfuls of cooked beans or one tin of white or berlotti type beans
  • one tin of good quality tuna (I like mine packed in olive oil)
  • one red onion, thinly sliced
  • a few juicy tomatoes, chopped into bite size pieces
  • lots of herbs (basil and/or parsley is nice
  • fresh lemon juice to taste
  • a generous drizzle of good olive oil

Mix all ingredients together gently and serve at room temperature with some nice fresh bread and a luscious glass of white wine (optional)  🙂

Bon appetît !
