Cannellini bean, tuna and caper salad

    15 min

    I serve this on a bed of lettuce or in a wrap. I love its fresh Mediterranean flavour.

    I can't honestly rate this recipe because I didn't follow it exactly. I didn't have all the ingredients. But what I did have was still delicious. I combined 1/2 cup light mayo, 2 T whole grain dijon, 1 T regular dijon in bowl. Added 2 cans drained tuna, 1/2 cup sweet white onion, 1/4 red and yellow bell peppers and about 1/3 cup chopped cilantro. Mixed it all in bowl...didn't use processor. Can be served as a wrap, on lettuce, in a sandwich, as a melt...however you like. It was a delicious, healthy lunch!  -  27 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not bad, far too much mayo, mustard, and relish. I cut my amount in half and wished that I cut it more. The salad was good on a pita.  -  11 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked the recipe, as I love anything with tuna and this seemed diffent, left out capers, don't like them, I then used on crackers and also made wraps out of this mixture, makes for a lite lunch or snack, thanks for sharing, its worth making!.  -  08 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
