Cannellini Bean & Tuna Salad

Make eating on-the-go easy, fresh, and satisfying with this Cannellini Bean and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna Salad recipe from Sam the Cooking Guy. This tuna cannellini bean salad recipe can be made ahead of time and available for office lunches, picnics, or potlucks.

Tip: keep the dressing separate, so the salad stays fresh longer, and add in your own touches (like fresh tomatoes) to personalize it.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


1 can (5 oz) Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore tuna, drained
1 15-oz can of white cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup leeks, thinly sliced
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon of kosher salt & fresh ground pepper


Make the dressing by combining olive oil, sesame oil, soy, lemon juice and salt & pepper – mix really well & set aside. Put tuna in a large bowl and break apart while still retaining chunks. Add beans, leeks, and parsley – mix carefully not to break the beans. Toss with some of the dressing and serve.
