Tuna and White Bean Salad

Tuna and White Bean Salad

Summery salads are an amazing way to vary up meals and keep prep time to a minimum. We know it can be hard to keep salads interesting, we highly recommend this colorful salad. It makes a hearty lunch or dinner thanks to 24 g of protein and 8 g of fiber. The satisfying crunch cucumber and red onion is balanced with fresh tomatoes, fragrant chopped parsley and bright lemon to top.

Tip: Keep the bean and tomato mixture separate from the spinach until you’re ready to serve.
