Easy Tuna & Cannellini Bean Salad

This salad is one my favorites to prepare and pack for work because it is just so easy to put together! Many tuna salads call for spoonfuls of mayonnaise but this one uses dill, balsamic vinegar, and honey to add flavor to the tuna and beans. The cannellini beans and tuna both contain protein to keep you full and the tuna packs in those heart-healthy omega-3s. Served over a bed of greens, this easy salad makes for a satisfying and filling lunch.
