This has become a staple in my kitchen. I make it as the recipe was presented, it is perfection. Love it!
Light, fresh, and packed with flavor! Stupid easy to make.
I made this with chickpeas, the rest of the recipe followed, 100% perfect dish! Worthy of 10 stars. Thanks, Elise for the great recipe, this will be a favorite here now.
Hi Elise, great sounding salad and I will be making this soon, will go with the chickpea option as that is what I have on hand, I will return with a rating as well.
I had this recipe some years ago and lost in somehow. A friend served it to me and I was thinking that it was not going to be good, I got so very hooked. The white bean salad recipe i looked for a long time. A restaurant in Mi served it so thank you for both of them. Pat
I loved this salad,one to definitely try!!
Substituted beans with chick peas! So tasty
I have been making this recipe for years and everyone loves it! Thank you! My son is now 11 and it’s one of his favorite meals and he can make it himself!
We loved this salad; the recipe was exactly what I was looking for. Had to use cheap-o chunk light tuna because I’m pregnant, but I’m looking forward to trying it again with something more steak-y. About to make it again for the second time in about a week. I have a picky kid who was overwhelmed by the salad but liked the individual components, so I’ll be making it on a bigger platter this time (like in the photo) so that he can eat the ingredients separately.
So good! I added some Quark for a creamy tuna/mayo style with some chilli flakes and chopped baby spinach, oh and basil as they only herb in the house. It was delicious!! Thanks for the store cupboard lunch save! x
Made this last night and so glad I did! I went with lime zest and juice and served it on a small bed of dandelion and Good King Henry that I had just weeded from the garden. I also used Elise’s Pickled Red Onions which were delicious with this combination. Jim below, brings up a good point about making this ahead and letting it marinate for at least a few hours if not over night. Will be making a double batch in the future to accomplish that! Also looking forward to trying other beans like pinto, black beans, lima or garbanzo.
This is a simple and very tasty, light salad. It’s great with a splash of white wine vinegar! It has become a regular in our house.
This is a great recipe for packed lunches and i’ve included it in my “more than 20 no sandwich packed lunch ideas” gx
Very good, used cilantro instead of parsley and mint.
Elise, I just discovered this site a couple years ago, wish I would have found it much earlier. I made this one as written with a good Genova brand Albacore packed in olive oil. I’ve made a similar tuna salad (sans beans) a while ago, and found it was much better the next day when the flavors had time to get to know each other. That said, it was *really* hard to quit sampling and put it up for tomorrow hehe.
Your recipes always seem to work, Elise. This is the third one I’ve tried in the last couple of days, and it was delicious. I substituted water-packed tuna, which is what I had, and added some olive oil. The addition of mint was fantastic.
I tried this sans mint/parsley but with artichoke hearts and garlic. Very good.
Thanks for this recipe. I can tell this one will become a staple. I had some leftover balsamic vinaigrette in the frig that I’d made with mint, basil, and lime juice, so I poured that over the salad and used white onion and green bell pepper. Just fantastic and fast.
We munched on this for lunches over the weekend. It was fabulous!! Of course I had to make a couple of changes but the inspiration was all yours. =) Thanks, Elise ~ I always have THE best luck with your recipes.
I do not like canned tuna or tabasco, but had both in the pantry and decided to go for it. I could not stop eating this salad! This will become a regular lunch-item in my house!
