Tuscan-Style Tuna Salad

From: EatingWell

This streamlined version of a northern Italian idea is perfect for a summer evening: no-fuss, no-cook and big taste. You can even make it ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. If you do, use it as a wrap filling for the next day's lunch.

Servings: 4 servings, 1 cup each
Prep: 10 mins
Total: 10 mins
Rated : Not yet rated
2 6-ounce cans  chunk light tuna, drained
1 15-ounce can  small white beans, such as cannellini or great northern, rinsed (see Ingredient note)
10   cherry tomatoes, quartered
4   scallions, trimmed and sliced
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons  lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1. Combine tuna, beans, tomatoes, scallions, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir gently. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Ingredient Note: When you use canned beans in a recipe, be sure to rinse them first in a colander under cold running water, as their canning liquid often contains a fair amount of sodium.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
