    3. 3
      Clean the green beans, remove the ends, and cut into smaller pieces if desired - They look better long but are easier to eat small - you can always cut them up on the plate.

      Make the dressing: Mix the yogurt, vinegar, and garlic, then mix in the rest of the dressing ingredients.

      These amounts are for 2 servings, so you'll use half of everything on each plate:.

    8. 8
      Sprinkle the capers over the tuna.

      Sprinkle the diced roasted red pepper over the chickpeas.
    10. 10
      Pour as much dressing as desired over each salad.

      Fresh and attractive. I actually made this some time ago when we had guests, and forgot to post a review. I did cook the beans for less than 6 mins as I suggested in my ill-conceived first comments. As I have it available, I used fresh thyme, basil and oregano, finely chopped. Instead of the vinegar I used lemon juice. Original and refreshing. Oh yes: I doubled the recipe to use with French bread as a lunch for the guests.

      Tuna, beans & peppers work well together as a combination of flavors. The dressing is just heavenly. I made up a double batch, so I can use it again on other salads.
