  • 1/4 medium onion, red
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 10 ounce tuna, canned in water
  • 15 ounce great northern beans, canned
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley, fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 slice bread, whole wheat
  • 4 leaf outer lettuce

Serve With

  • 4 medium orange
  • 1 medium cucumber


  • Dice red onion.  Zest and juice lemon.
  • In a small bowl, sprinkle some of the lemon juice over the chopped onions while you prepare the other ingredients. This will help reduce the intensity of the onion taste.
  • Drain the tuna and put it into a medium bowl. Drain and rinse the beans.  Mash half the beans; add to the tuna along with the whole beans. Gently stir to combine. Add the onions, chopped parsley, black pepper, lemon zest, remaining lemon juice and olive oil; mix to combine. Add hot sauce and salt, to taste. If the salad seems a little dry, add a bit more olive oil.
  • Toast bread and spread each of 4 slices with tuna mixture. Top with lettuce leaves and second slice of bread; cut in half. Serve each with cucumber slices and orange wedges.
