Tuna Bean Salad

Whenever I eat this salad it makes me think of hot summer days in Spain as this is one of my go-to lunches. It’s not really a recipe, to be honest, it’s just the case of throwing some of your favourite things together but I think this combo works really well.


  1. Simple take all the salad ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Feel free to add more of any of the ingredients that you like or even add other ingredients to it.
  2. In a jar add the oil, vinegar, garlic and oregano along with a pinch of salt. Pop a lid on and give it a good shake, or just mix in a bowl. Pour all over the salad and mix well. Serve  immediately with some nice crusty baguette.
