Tuna Boat Bean Salad

Make 6 to 8 hours before serving so flavors meld.

Serves 6


  • 6 hot dog buns*
  • 3 cups cooked or canned white beans (Great Northern or Navy)rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tuna in water, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 cup low fat Italian dressing

Split each bun lengthwise and scoop out the center of each side to form a “boat”; set aside. Combine beans, celery, tuna, green onion, and Italian dressing in a bowl and mix well. Place 1/2 cup bean mixture into hollowed out bun.

Notes: * Pita bread pockets can be substituted for hot dog buns.
