One of my favorite salads – very simple, very tasty. I use the tuna that comes in a jar with oil or water as it has a better flavor than regular canned tuna (and fresh grilled tuna would be the ultimate). The basic recipe is tuna, cannellini beans, and red onion slices nestled on a bed of shredded lettuce garnished with capers and served with an apple cider vinaigrette.
Romaine lettuce – shredded
1 x 7 oz jar of tuna – drained and broken into small pieces
1 x 15 oz can of cannellini beans – rinse and drained
Several slices of red onion – depending on how much you like it
2 tsp capers for garnishing (optional)
Place the lettuce on a platter and put the beans and tuna on top, sprinkle with red onion and top with olives. Toss with dressing or let people serve themselves.
Apple Cider Vinaigrette
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix mustard and vinegar until they make a smooth liquid.
Add the oil and season with salt and pepper and whisk together (for the best results place in an old jar with a lid and give the ingredients a good shake – this will emulsify the dressing).
