    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.

    I like how you can make a salad look so…appetising, lol.

    Perfect for a healthy lunch!

    I have had this salad in Italy, so good, and yours looks so delicious!!

    I love this as a way to dress up a bit of tuna and add some extra protein from the beans! I would definitely make a big batch of this to have for weekday work lunches – and actually look forward to eating it!

    This would be the perfect addition to any summer picnic!

    This looks like a wonderful healthy salad full of great ingredients! I just bet it would be a great hit at potlucks this summer!

    I make a similar tuna and bean salad and absolutely love serving it in summer. My son has recently taken a liking to tuna so I can’t wait to make this again soon. Gorgeous photos!
