Tuna and Bean Salad

Tuna and Bean Salad blends two simple and popular ingredients that blend beautifully with each other. The cannelini beans remain firm and full of Italian flavor.

This salad recipe is ideal with your barbecue or for a light lunch. Because the beans are so filling, it is best to serve in small quantities and allow your guests to take more if they wish. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia
