Cannellini Bean, Tuna and Caper Spread

    15 minutes

    I serve this on a bed of lettuce or in a wrap. Its nutritious with tuna and beans and I love its fresh Mediterranean flavour. Also a good dip!

    Yummy!!! Simple and easy and fast and healthy. Win.  -  28 Aug 2013


    I can't honestly rate this recipe because I didn't follow it exactly. I didn't have all the ingredients. But what I did have was still delicious. I combined 1/2 cup light mayo, 2 T whole grain dijon, 1 T regular dijon in bowl. Added 2 cans drained tuna, 1/2 cup sweet white onion, 1/4 red and yellow bell peppers and about 1/3 cup chopped cilantro. Mixed it all in bowl...didn't use processor. Can be served as a wrap, on lettuce, in a sandwich, as a melt...however you like. It was a delicious, healthy lunch!  -  27 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Not bad, far too much mayo, mustard, and relish. I cut my amount in half and wished that I cut it more. The salad was good on a pita.  -  11 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
