Friday recipe: kidney bean and tuna salad

January 29, 2010 —

I’m a big fan of tuna salad. It’s super easy, inexpensive and healthy! Don’t let the kidney beans in the title of this recipe scare you. They are a harmless red bean that add bulk (and protein) to this super simple sandwich.

Kidney bean and tuna salad


1 15 ½ oz. can kidney beans, drained
½ cup green pepper, chopped
1 6 ½ oz. can water packed tuna, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
3 tablespoon non-fat yogurt
½ cup chopped celery
3 tablespoon pickle relish

Mix together all ingredients and chill.

Serve on whole wheat pita, on crackers, or on a bed of crisp lettuce.
