RECIPE: White Bean Salad that Tastes Like Tuna?

Hmmm.  The original recipe sounded good - chickpeas made into a salad that tastes like tuna.  Unfortunately, it doesn't taste anything like tuna salad!  But, it tastes good, and I make it often because it's a quick meal, wrapped in a lettuce leaf.

Original Recipe: Chickpea of the Sea

Lemony White Bean Salad
Serves 4-6

  • 1 28oz can of white beans, drained
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 large onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 t. Dijon mustard
  • Zest and juice from 1 small lemon
  • 1 t. chopped fresh dill
  • 1/8 t. ground bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, mash the beans slightly.  Add the celery and onion.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Fold the dressing into the beans and taste for seasoning.
