Cannellini bean salad

During the summer we are always looking for something good and quick to prepare.

 Usually we indulge ourselves with pasta and rice salads, using various and tasty ingredients. What I propose today instead is a cannellini bean salad, rich in protein and an excellent fresh dish for the hot summer evenings! 

Obviously, as in all recipes, you will need to buy the ingredients, unless for a casual and fortuitous coincidence (I doubt it) you do not already have them in your pantry in the kitchen.

INGREDIENTS for 2 people:

  • 2 cans of 150 gr. of natural tuna

  • 1 red tropea onion
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste.

  • Dip the beans in cold water for about 20 minutes then drain.fagioli cannellini ad insalata (10)
