Tuna Bean Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by HomeFryMama

This is a fresh, summery salad with lots of protein and very little fat. It's great served over lettuce or as a side dish at a potluck.

I liked this spin on tuna salad. I used grape tomatoes cut into quarters and purple onion, but otherwise followed the recipe. I liked the hint of cumin and mingled flavors. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Pick A Chef 2014.
