Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Just made this. Made it as indicated, but it was a bit bland for our family's tastes so I added some fresh basil, a tbsp white vinegar, and salt and pepper and it is wonderful!

Edit: Made this again because we liked it so much and I think this will be a staple for us this summer. Thanks 4 sharing

Heeding the other commenters, I added some extra flavor to this by adding the following:
- extra fresh parsley
- a bit of fresh dill
- about 1/4 cup of champagne vinegar
- extra salt and pepper
- substituted a can of wild salmon for one of the cans of tuna

YUM.

would definitely taste great over some spinach and with lemon juice! I added pepper, garlic salt, capers and balsamic vinegar. Very tasty for lunch! Submitted by:

I added capers and apple cider vinegar because I use low sodium tuna, and this was awesome! Submitted by:

As is, this recipe is very bland. Adding the ingredients others suggested livens it up and makes it very tasty. I think rinsing the beans removes too much salt, so it needed at least capers and olives. I didn't like the parsley in it either. With the other ingredients added, I'd give it 4 stars. Submitted by:

To add some contrasting rich green color, I'd dice up some zucchini since it's in season and the skin is healthy to eat--or perhaps some garden chives. Fresh basil is growing like a weed this month--and itl packs a whollop of vitamins, minerals and good health in just a couple leaves. Submitted by:

I think fresh parsley, sea salt, lemon, and a little more olive oil go a long way to perk this up. Submitted by:
