A Refreshing Salad Idea....Brown Bag Series #7

For me lettuce is like a blank canvas just waiting to be built upon.  I rarely make the same salad twice. Depending on my mood there is always something different to be added or taken away.  I do like to start with a nice mix of greens: butter lettuce, arugula, red leaf and sometimes endive and go from there. This week's combination includes tuna, feta, white beans, roasted red peppers and avocados.

I like really light dressings on my salads. My favorite, which I used here, is a combination of olive oil and lemon juice seasoned with salt and pepper. Quick, easy and perfect for a weekday lunch...this is what's inside my Brown Bag this week.

Tuna, White Bean & Avocado Salad

Mixed greens
1 avocado, diced
1 can white beans, drained
Feta cheese, crumbled
Roasted red peppers
Italian tuna, packed in oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Olive oil

Mix ingredients together.  Combine 1 part lemon juice with 2 parts oil.  Drizzle on salad.  Season with salt and pepper.


  1. rarely do I make the same salad twice, but THIS looks good enough to repeat often!

  2. I am always looking for a filling salad for lunch! This is perfect!
