Simple Pleasures

Posted on

Like simple lunch recipes. Three items, and seasoning. Not fresh, but things right out of the pantry.

Tuna, cannellini bean and onion salad

Served with a side of my tomatoes. Olives and feta to garnish. I found this recipe years ago in one of my Williams Sonoma cookbooks.

I love the description used as an introduction. If you want an excellent source for Tuscan recipes, this is the book for you.

I made it with the canned tuna and the canned beans. Use organic beans if you can find them. Drain and rinse. Use a can of good tuna packed in olive oil. Dice a small sweet onion. I used Vidalia. Salt, pepper, olive oil to taste.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. Good supply of organic dried beans at Roots yesterday – over by the coffee.

    That looks delicious !

  2. I brought tuna and white beans with me to the beach with the specific intent to make a salad with them… but it still hasn’t happened. Considering that I also happen to have tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta on hand, I think I have tomorrow’s lunch figured out. Thanks for the inspiration!
