White Bean and Tuna Salad
It's been a long time since I have made a food post but with my new diet, I am trying to make as many "low carb" foods and I can. I remember having this salad a few times this summer in Tuscany, in Orvieto and in Florence. It's a simple 5 ingredient or so salad that really tastes great. It it also a great topping for crostini. Try it before the summer is over.
