    Here is a tasty way to transform an ordinary canned tuna into a delicious meal. This Tuna White Bean Salad is great for potlucks, perfect for a light lunch, and even an appetizer.It tastes wonderful with some gluten-free scoops.

    This low-calorie salad is made with only 5 main ingredients and tossed in a light dressing. White beans, tuna, red onion, scallions, and parsley is what you need for the salad. And the dressing is made of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Very simple, but oh-so-flavorful! The lemon juice adds so much freshness to the salad and the beans that creamy taste. It’s hard to stop eating it.

    If you would like to make this salad for a lunch, you could serve it in a gluten-free tortilla, croissant, or on a slice of bread. It’s absolutely amazing! I think it tastes even better the next day after it has been refrigerated for overnight.
