Borlotti beans, tuna and red onion dressed with Parmesan and lemon
Ingredients
  • 1 can of borlotti beans
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • The juice of a lemon and a little zest if you fancy it – I usually do
  • ¼ red onion, peeled and very finely sliced
  • About 100g drained tuna fish from a can – choose a really good one
  • 1-2 tbsp garlic or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to season
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan shavings
  • 1 tbsp good quality balsamic vinegar
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, squeeze the lemon and sprinkle the zest over the chopped onion and let the flavours mix and absorb.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans, then turn them into a separate mixing bowl.
  3. Open and drain the tuna, arranging it in flakes over the beans.
  4. Cover the beans and tuna with the lemon and onion mix, grind over some salt and pepper and drizzle over with the balsamic vinegar.
  5. Toss the salad to coat the tuna and beans with the dressing, before spooning it out in the salad bowl.
  6. Lightly drop over the Parmesan shavings and sprinkle over the fresh parsley.
  7. Serve with love.
