Salad with Tuna and Beans

A friend of mine had come over a while back and brought over a salad with tuna and beans on it. Its a perfect addition to any salad and very filling! I am always running out of ideas for what to put on a salad and this was quite tasty, so I wanted to share for anyone else who is always trying to give their salad a bit of variety :)

Bean and Tuna Salad

Bean and Tuna Salad

Ingredients (2-4 people):
1 package Lettuce
1 tomato
1 can tuna
1 can of beans (black, pinto, red, navy, etc…) — your choice of beans but black beans are pretty tasty 😀
lemon juice
olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions:
Chop up the lettuce and add to a bowl. Chop up the tomato and add on top of lettuce. Drain the tuna and add to the salad. Drain and wash the beans and add to the salad as well.

In a different bowl mix the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and then pour the dressing over the salad. If you desire a different type of dressing you can mix yogurt, mayo, a tad bit of ketchup, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and pour that over your salad. However, the dressing with mayo is probably not the healthy choice…but its pretty good.
