Quicky Bean and Tuna Salad

If you’re looking for a quick lunch that is full of protein, fiber and good carbohydrates, try a tuna and bean salad. Normally when making meals with kidney beans or chick peas, I do like to season them myself. However, as used in my chicken chili recipe, I use the Unico Marinated Bean Salad whenever I’m in a rush. So if you have no aversions to tuna, here’s my great quick and easy protein packed recipe for a tuna and bean salad. I’ve also included the nutrition information. This recipe is for one serving. Enjoy! 🙂
