Tuna Salad With Black Beans

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Queen Roachie

My mom and I made this up when I was visiting last weekend... High protein and very tasty. She ate this with pork rinds (low carber) while I had it on bread. Other seasonings and amounts can be added to your taste, I'm sure. Tuna salads tend to be flexible. Not sure of the yield so I guessed, since I didn't measure.

EXCELLENT creation! I didn't get the beans or tomatoes drained quite enough before stirring everything together, but despite that, my family GOBBLED this up! They ate it on Roasted Garlic Triscuits & on bread as a sandwich. DH made me promise to keep this recipe close at hand. It's inexpensive, handy ingredients & quick to make. To counteract my not draining enough to begin with, I set the whole mixture in a mine mesh strainer, over a large bowl, & just let it drain itself for about 10 minutes. By the time DH was done mowing the lawn & came in to eat it was perfect. In the future I'll probably put the beans & tomatoes over the strainer before adding them to the mixture, just to make sure I do a good job. ;) Thanks for an awesome snack, lunch or light dinner, Queen Roachie! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :) http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
