This protein-packed Mediterranean salad is a summer favorite! Lean tuna, tender white beans form the base of this simple and healthy dish. It works equally well for a lakeside lunch or a light but filling dinner. Add a glass of rosé and you’ll be virtually transported to the south of France or the quaint harbor at Mykonos.
