Recipe: Healthy Tuna and Beans Salad / by Ginevra Held

Today I had a simple but delicious and healthy lunch that I thought I would share with you.  I am currently on the 21 Day Clean diet, also known as the Elimination Diet.  This recipe is in compliance with that diet.  It is an Italian recipe, I have had it many times before, but I think I kind of forgot about it until now.

Here is the recipe for Tuna and Bean Salad:

Canned Tuna in Water (if on Elimination) or in Olive Oil

Beans, (traditionally Canelini but I used Cranberry) - I always use dried beans that I soak overnight and then boil the next day

Pickled Red Onions - Slice a red onion very thinly and douse it in Red Wine Vinegar, let sit 10 minutes at least.

Mix all of the ingredients, add a lot of olive oil and fresh ground pepper and voila!  Tastes great with a side of avocado.

Easy and good.  Hope you like it.

I think I will explain the Elimination Diet and why I am doing it in my next post, so stay tuned.
