Pantry Raid: Tuna, Capers, & White Bean Salad

Restlessly pacing the kitchen at eleven o'clock Thursday evening, eager to slap together something fast and (hopefully) tasty to take to work in the morning, my gaze fell upon a small golden tin of oil-packed tuna and I had the most delicious brainstorm. I would make tuna and white bean salad! Why not?! I had tuna. I had beans. I had capers. And shallots. And lemon. Mmm, lemon! It was going to be the most awesome tuna salad ever.

And, you know, it pretty much was. If you're sensible, this recipe serves two. I am not sensible and went omnomnom until it was all gone and then I wished for more.
Tuna & White Bean Salad

5 oz tin oil packed tuna, undrained
15.5 oz tin white beans, drained and rinsed
1 small shallot, minced
2 tsp capers, drained but not rinsed
Lemon juice
Black pepper
Parsley
Baby spinach

Mix undrained tuna, beans, shallot, and capers together. Season with lemon juice, black pepper, and parsley to taste. Serve on a bed of baby spinach.

I'm thinking this would be awesome in the summer with chopped garden tomatoes and fresh basil or tarragon.
