Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh arugula
  • 1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added cannellini, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
  • 1/3 cup pitted Nicoise or other olives
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans (5 ounces each) albacore white tuna in water, drained

Directions

Place first seven ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and salt; drizzle over salad. Add tuna and toss gently to combine. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Kalamata olives, though stronger in flavor, would be a good substitute for Nicoise olives.
  • Extra virgin olive oil adds a subtle fruity flavor to the dressing, but plain olive oil could be used instead.
