Number of Servings: 5


    I can of white kidney beans, approximately 2 cups, drained
    1/3 cup of dill pickles, chopped
    1 can of tuna packed in water, drained
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 clove of garlic
    1/2 cup of water, as needed
    pepper to taste


Keep water and pepper aside. Blend other ingredients in food processor and add water as needed to obtain the texture you desire. I like my dip very smooth and a bit thin, but you may want it thick and chunky. Season to taste with pepper.

Makes 5 servings of 1/2 cup each

    Really good and so easy to fix. Serve on a cracker, in a scooped out tomato or with piece of Romaine lettuce! A great way to get my tuna for someone who doesn't really like tuna. - 11/14/09

    Tasty dip-- I really enjoyed on a cracker. I used northern beans, and sweet relish since that's what I had on hand. Also put in a 1/2 tsp of dried dill weed. Wasn't a huge fan of the texture/consistency, so I may make again without blending as much for a chunkier spread. Thanks! - 10/23/10

    I substituted sugar-free sweet relish for dill pickles, and a Tbsp olive oil and some lemon juice for the water. Put on toasted English Muffins with 2% Swiss Cheese on top and put under the broiler until cheese melted & browned. Loved it! - 1/7/14

    This recipe is great, especially for lunch on the go! It tastes a lot like tuna salad, but the beans make it creamy instead of mayo. I, too, left it chunky, served on a pita with lettuce and tomato! Yum :) - 8/14/11
