Low Fat Bean & Tuna Salad

Out off all recipes with beans this Bean, Tuna & Spinach Salad is at the top of my list. Full of protein from beans and tuna, with crispy organic baby spinach, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and a handful of freshly chopped dill. A mix between tuna salad, beans salad and green salad.

This healthy salad is more of a full meal than a side salad. I usually have it with a toasted Ezekiel or dark rye bread. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day, especially if packing lunch in the early morning rush to work.

Tips

Use chopped pickled asparagus or green beans instead of pickles.
Do not add salt as there is enough sodium from canned veggies.
Substitute spinach with romaine lettuce for that extra crunch.

    This was a really quick, tasty salad that I ate like my main entree. It was great for taking to work too as a lunch. I’ll be making this again!
