Tuna, Red Onion And White Bean Salad

I’m not a great lover of salads, as I suppose most have masses of rabbit food, but I will have occasional had a nicoise in somewhere like Carluccio’s or Pizza Express or bought one in a supermarket.

On the side in my kitchen was a pack of red onions and a couple of weeks ago, I searched for something I might make and found this recipe on the BBC web site.

I made it tonight.

The ingredients were very simple and this makes two portions.

2 tbsp of olive oil. I used Carluccio’s lemon oil, that I use a lot on fish.

1 tsp of mustard.  I used Tiptree. Not Dijon, but East Anglian

A splash of lemon juice.

1 x 200g can tuna, drained and flaked into chunks.

400g tin cannellini beans, rinsed and drained.

Half of red onion, finely sliced.

50g rocket

This is all the ingredients, after combining the oil, mustard and lemon juice in my Little Chopper.

The Ingredients

Note the Estrella Damm Daura, which is the only gluten-free beer I have at the moment.

As I said, I started by comibining the oil, mustard and lemon juice, which was then tossed with the tuna, beans and onion, and seasoned.

Finally, I tossed in the rocket and served one portion.
