Tuna Salad Caprese

This week I wanted something different for lunch.  As I was looking around for a creative tuna recipe, I stumbled upon this one for tuna caprese on the shiksa.com. It was really good!

Ingredients

  • 1 can or jar (5-6 oz) good quality tuna packed in olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cannelini beans, drained (canned or cooked) I couldn’t find cannelini beans so I got canned organic garbanzo beans instead
  • 4-5 leaves fresh basil, torn
  • 1 sweet vine ripened tomato, sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil  Balsamic vinaigrette

Total Time: 2 Minutes

Drain the excess oil off the tuna and flake it into a salad bowl. Scatter the beans, fresh basil and tomato over the top of the tuna. I ended up drizzling the salad with home made balsamic vinaigrette to top it off. It was amazing. I also added this exact thing on top of some lettuce with more dressing and voila, a salad!
