White Bean and Tuna Salad
1 thinly sliced red onion
4 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 can white beans (I like Cannellini)
2-6.5 oz can water-packed tuna, drained
1 garlic clove, minced
juice of 1 lemon
4 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp capers, rinsed
Sea salt to taste
1. Put the onions in a container, add 3 tablespoons of the lime juice and cover with water. Let them soak for 30 minutes then drain.
2. Rinse beans very well and drain. Drain water from tuna.
3. Toss the remaining lime and lemon with the onions. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
