We sometimes have this for lunch or dinner in the summer when it's too hot to cook. It's got a little bit of everything...veggies,carbs and it's high in protein too. I usually serve with a crusty bread.

Great lunch salad - light and healthy. We really enjoyed the dressing for the tuna and white beans. You can further embellish this salad by adding olives, boiled eggs and herbs. Easy to put together and very filling. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
