Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I often have trouble getting in enough fiber. The addition of beans is a great help. I sometimes replace the olive oil and lemon with a low fat salad dressing. Submitted by:

Would have never thought of putting beans with tuna but this was a great combination. And what a boost to the protein and fiber! I had to jazz it up a bit with some spices as it was a little bland as written, but very tasty none the less. Submitted by:

This is one of my favorite combinations! I make my own beans to cut down on the sodium and I always add finely chopped garlic and parsley to this along with throwing in a few garbanzo beans. Submitted by:

I tried this recipe today. I like that its quick and easy, perfect for throwing together in the evenings for lunch the next day. I had a bag of green, red and yellow peppers with onions, so I threw those in, which really bumped up the flavor. A little kosher salt and pepper and you're good to go! Submitted by:

Was looking for a recipe for added protein and came across this one. Made it with chickpeas and added cucumber and some pepper. For one of the cans of tuna I used a chipotle flavoured one in oil that I rinsed a bit. This is perfect for lunches! Submitted by:

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
