  • 12 oz Canned Tuna
  • 15 oz Cannelini beans
  • 1/3 cup capers
  • 6 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Pepper, Black
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups Tomatoes Cherry
  • 2 cups Fresh Baby Arugula

1 In a large bowl, add the tuna, reserving the olive oil in a separate small bowl. Break tuna into bite-size pieces with a large fork. Add the beans and capers.
2 Into the bowl of olive oil, add the red wine vinegar. You should have 1 part vinegar to 2 parts oil - add more extra-virgin olive oil if necessary. Season with salt and pepper.
3 Pour dressing on the tuna, bean and caper mixture and allow the flavors to infuse while slicing the vegetables.
4 Add the onion and tomatoes to tuna mixture and toss gently.
5 Place the arugula on large decorative platter and top with tuna mixture. Tear fresh basil leaves over the top and serve immediately.
