This was a really quick brunch fix cos’ it was one of those make-ahead meals that I’d prepare the night before and all I would do the next day was just to toss the ingredients with the dressing. Nothing too fanciful as I just wanted to keep the flavours simple and I chose to use canned tuna in water as it’s low in fat and is a high lean protein. Every 100g of tuna has only about 110kcal which is even better! Enjoy this Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe 😉
Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe
Ingredients (serves 4)
250g penne or fusili pasta (I used a mix of both), cooked according to packet instructions
1 can tuna in water, drained
400g can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
200g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 red onions, sliced
handful of chopped parsley
Dressing: (combine in a bowl)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
juice of 1 lemon
1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and pour the dressing all over.
2. Toss thoroughly to combine.
3. Chill in fridge for flavours to marry before serving.
MMmm, that’s one of my favorite salads. I like the combo of the tart cherries with the tuna.
That’s why I like it too 😉
Looks good Geri! 🙂
Thanks Linda 🙂
Summery and fresh flavours…looks perfect..
