Italian White Bean and Tuna Salad

August 30, 2013


Author Notes: Cannellini beans never taste so good! Inspired by the bean salad served at an Italian restaurant called Fratelli Fresh in Sydney, this salad is packed with goodies from the soil and the sea. It seems Italians love different kinds of beans and incorporate the vitamin-rich pulses into their cooking from salads to soups to casseroles. If you are tired of boring green salad, try this refreshing alternative.sweetsholic
