1/4 onions, coarsely chopped   50 g
1 1/2 cup white "navy" beans (canned)   375 mL
170 g tuna, canned    
1 1/2 tbsp Classic Vinaigrette (Recipe)   23 mL
2 tsp Parsley and Garlic Base (Recipe)   10 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1 tomatoes, sliced   120 g
2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh [optional]   10 g


  1. Coarsely chop the onion. In a small bowl, soak the onion in water with few drops of vinegar for at least 30 min. You can also leave it overnight in the refrigerator. This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans, then place them in another bowl. Add the onion and tuna.
  3. Pour in the Classic Vinaigrette, add the Parsley and Garlic base, salt, and pepper to taste. Toss well to combine.
  4. Let the salad stand for about 10 min, then transfer to individual serving plates, garnish with the tomatoes and parsley leaves, and serve.
