TUNA, BEAN & TOMATO SALAD



COOKBOOK: Women’s Weekly Fast Seafood

RATE: ❤️❤️👌🏻👌🏻💲💲

I’m not necessarily a tuna lover so this was just an ok dish for me. I did add some beetroot to see if it could spice it up. It was just ok.

For those who must add tuna in their diet, this is a nice salad to introduce.

Enjoy
