  • 1 can (6 oz) white tuna in water, drained, flaked
  • 1 cup frozen cut green beans (from 12-oz bag), cooked, rinsed with cold water
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    For a different presentation idea, line 4 individual salad plates with lettuce. Spoon salad onto lettuce.
  • tip 2
    Tuna is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, nutrients that may reduce the risk of heart disease.
