  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 10m

4 servings, 1 cup each

This streamlined version of a northern Italian idea is perfect for a summer evening: no-fuss, no-cook and big taste. You can even make it ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. If you do, use it as a wrap filling for the next day's lunch.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.


  • Two 6-ounce cans chunk light tuna, drained
  • One 15-ounce can small white beans, such as cannellini or Great Northern, rinsed (see Ingredient note)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Ingredient Note: When you use canned beans in a recipe, be sure to rinse them first in a colander under cold running water, as their canning liquid often contains a fair amount of sodium.


Combine the tuna, beans, tomatoes, scallions, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir gently. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
