The day has finally came! The feeling is one of freedom and relaxation. Even so, I have already started to make plans and writing lists of what I want to do on this vacations. Time flies. I haven't done anything and I have already a feeling that I won't get everything done.
Before I start publicizing what I have planned reading, which movies to watch, etc., I first wanted to celebrate the beginning of this holidays with a light, simple and tasty canned white bean and tuna salad.
70g lettuce and arugula
1/2 roasted red peppers
1/2 roasted green pepper
1 red onion
3 roma tomatoes
300g cooked canned white beans
2 cans of tuna
salt and pepper
1. In a bowl combine the lettuce leaves and arugula, roasted peppers cut into small strips, sliced onions, sliced tomatoes, canned beans and the previously drained cans of tuna.
2. Season with salt, pepper, vinegar and olive oil to taste. Stir and serve.
This salad, like most of the salads I have prepared, was made with the ingredients I had close at hand. And it tasted lovely!
