Tuna Salad

2 Feb

unnamed

This is from the Mayo Clinic diet plan but I thought it needed more flavor and it was really good.

2 cans drained solid white tuna

One can of drained white beans

6 tablespoons of chopped Italian parsley. Only use fresh.

1/4 of a large red onion or 4 scallions, diced

The juice and zest of a lemon

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 diced fresh red pepper

2 heaping tablespoons capers with the brine

6 chopped pickled jalopenos slices

2 chopped sweet pickles

3 to 4 cups baby arugula

10 to 15 grape tomatoes

grapes on the side

Flake the tuna apart so you don’t have any big chunks

Add everything else and mix well

Serve on the arugula with the tomatoes and grapes as garnish

If I wasn’t on a diet I would put this on a toasted Italian or ciabatta roll that I smeared with butter. The roll would be crunchy and the butter would melt and anything tastes great on this.

Great beach lunch
