Eating well doesn’t necessarily mean spending hours in the kitchen whipping up fancy sauces using the latest kitchen gadgets… Sometimes it’s good to get back to the basics and enjoy simple flavors and no-fuss preparation.
This refreshing salad is traditional in Italy and can be prepared from ingredients you should always keep in your pantry: canned tuna and canned beans! Of course, you can go all fancy if you want and sear a fresh tuna steak and boil your beans, but I’ll stick to the pantry version myself…
This is a quick an easy lunch that is packed with nutrition and will make your heart happy and healthy! Oh, and your wallet too!
