White Bean & Tuna Arugula Salad 🥗


This salad contains ALL the flavors. It’s a guaranteed hit.

And of course, it has peppery arugula (also known as rocket) – this week’s food of the week) in it.

Experiment with this recipe by adding cooked or canned salmon instead of the tuna, or leave out the fish altogether for a vegan meal.
