A [Healthy] 5-Minute Lunch

Fresh, healthy, low-carb and high in protein seems to be the mantra for those who are looking to maintain or better yet shed some unwanted pounds. I’ve long held on to this wonderful easy summer salad that packs a delicious flavor punch and is also a very fast meal. 1 can of tuna packed in oil, 1 can (15 oz) of cannellini beans, 1/4 of a medium sized red onion (diced) and a 1/3 cup of italian parsley (chopped). Drain the tuna and reserve the oilive oil in a separate bowl. Rinse the beans and add to the tuna. Add chopped parsley and diced onion. Drizzle some red-wine vinegar into the reserved olive oil, whisk to emulsify and pour of the salad. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy! As a rule of thumb, a balanced dressing should have 3x the olive oil as it does acid (vinegar).
